Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This marvelously conceived new translation of Plato's most important dialogue will set the standard for classroom use for many years to come… The authors' imaginative new interpretation will inspire students and generate scholarly controversy - and is thus certain to accomplish what it suggests is the true aim of Socratic inquiry: the weaving, unweaving, and perpetual re-weaving of the Logos.

— Dr. George R. Lucas, Jr., Professor of Philosophy, US Naval Academy, Annapolis
