Overview

Plato (424 BC–348 BC) was a Classical Greek writer of philosophical dialogues, student of Socrates and founder of the Academy in Athens; the most important figure in Western philosophy. In the words of Whitehead: "The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato." "Platonism" is a term coined by scholars to refer to the intellectual consequences of denying, the reality of the material world. The physical objects and physical events are "shadows" of their ideal or perfect forms, and, maybe, this is the idea of his philosophy better known. This collection contains his complete dialogues (translated and annotated by Benjamin Jowett), organized by their approximate age: Apology, Charmides, Crito, Euthyphro, Alcibiades, Lesser Hippias, Laches, Lysis, Cratylus, Euthydemus, Gorgias, Menexenus, Meno, Phaedo, Protagoras, Symposium, The Republic, Phaedrus, Parmenides, Theaetetus, Timaeus, Critias, Sophist, Statesman, Philebus & Laws.
