    I Also Recommend:

    Great Edition

    This is an excellent collection of Plato's dialogues. I bought this book because I prefer Jowett's translation to others. Also, it is a great deal. This edition features 13 dialogues (12 if you do not count Laws, which is abridged). It would cost much more than $10 to purchase these separately or in other editions. Additionally, I like that the print is easy to read. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.

    A reviewer

    Plato's grasp of ideals and values on the function of society and its correlation to the soul's of its denizens shows how a truly sublime mind can convey the meaning of a perfect society. The Republic simply makes one wonder about existence and actions taken by our fellow man. I highly recommend this political masterpiece for its high-brow reasoning of the world and all its citizens.

    If you haven't read this yet then you're a cabbage.

    Ponderous yet amazingly gripping. Absolutely a must-read classic.
