DIALOGUES OF SOCRATES


DIALOGUES OF SOCRATES

PLATO    Book Number: 83605    Product format: PAPERBACK

Socrates was one of the greatest philosophers of antiquity and we only know of him and his ideas through the words of his most prominent student, Plato. Plato was a prolific writer and produced several important works of philosophy that have shaped Western thought. Most followed the format of a Socratic dialogue, presented through a fictional conversation between Socrates and various Athenian citizens. This volume brings together six classic dialogues: Charmides, the Symposium (shockingly rude!), Euthyphro, Apology, Crito and Phaedo. Restraint, a contest of speeches and rhetoric on the subject of love, the meaning of piety, justice are among the topics in these classic works of philosophy. Phaedo recounts the day of Socrates' death in a heart breaking tale of courage of standing up for one's views even when facing death. 268pp in new paperback.
