Plato is acknowledged as one of the greatest philosophers of classical
Greece, and the thirty-six dialogues that are credited to him helped to lay
the foundations of Western philosophy. The Republic and Other Dialogues
collects seven of Plato's best-known works in Benjamn Jowett's classic
translation. In The Republic, Plato's teacher, Socrates, discusses the
character of the just city-state and its citizens. Symposium and
Phaedrus explore the nature and meaning of love. The dialogues
Euthyphro, Apology, Crito and Phaedo chronicle the trial,
sentencing, and execution of Socrates for his perceived crimes against the
state. The Republic and Other Dialogues is one of Barnes & Noble's
leatherbound classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the
world's greatest authors in an exquisitely designed bonded-leather binding,
with distinctive gilt edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark.
Decorative, durable and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to
readers young and old and are an indispensible cornerstone for every home
library.
