SpecificationsAbout the Author Plato c. 427-347 BC was an Athenian philosopher-dramatist. Born into a wealthy and prominent family he grew up during the conflict between Athens and the Peloponnesian states which engulfed the Greek world from 431 to 404 BC. Following its turbulent aftermath he was deeply affected by the condemnation and execution of his revered master Socrates 469-399 on charges of irreligion and corrupting the young. In revulsion from political activity Plato devoted his life to the pursuit of philosophy. Plato founded the Academy an early ancestor of the modern university devoted to philosophical and mathematical enquiry and to the education of future rulers or philosopher-kings. The Academys most celebrated member was the young Aristotle 384-322 who studied there for the last twenty years of Platos life. Their works mark the highest peak of philosophical achievement in antiquity and both continue to rank among the greatest philosophers of all time.Author 1 PlatoFormat PaperbackEdition Number 3Editorial Review "In addition to a vivid dignified and accurate rendition of Platos text the student and general reader will find many aids to comprehension in this volume: an introduction that assesses the cultural background to the Republic its place within political philosophy and its general argument; succinct notes in the body of the text; an analytical summary of the works content; a full glossary of proper names; a chronology of important events; and a guide to further reading. The result is an accomplished and accessible edition of this seminal work suitable for philosophers and classicists as well as historians of political thought at all levels."
