Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The overall value of Bartlett's translation is very high. The footnotes are extraordinarily helpful; the prose is clear and readable; and the interpretive essays will surely prove to be an excellent source of classroom discussion. This volume is a welcome addition to Plato scholarship."—Edward Moore, St. Elias School of Orthodox Theology, Philosophy in Review, Vol. 24, No. 4-6, Aug-Dec 2004

"Robert C. Bartlett's translations of Protagoras and Meno display a degree of accuracy and literalness that makes them most suitable for scholarly and teaching purposes. The consistency with which Bartlett has translated terms enables the reader to confidently develop an interpretation of Plato's meaning as the terms recur in the dialogues. His notes and introductory essays are thoughtful, learned, and well-designed guides to assist the reader toward a serious confrontation with the philosophic issues dealt with in the texts. They raise questions, sketch lines of interpretation, and guide one toward one's own thinking rather than declaring the definitive interpretation or examining the questions exhaustively, which makes them ideal for classroom use."—James H. Nichols, Claremont McKenna College
