Overview

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 Benjamin 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. "Euthyphro," "Apology," "Crito," and "Paedo" chronicle the trial, sentencing, and execution of Socrates for his perceived crimes against the state.

This edition of The Republic and Other Dialogues is a must have. The print size is easy to read and it is a very sturdy book. It is also very beautiful for those of you who also want a book as an item of d&eacute;cor.

Glorious book filigreed with rose gold and grey announcing The Republic and Other Dialogues. Along with staff and arrow . It's width on line with DUNE and STAR WARS. A thick luxurious leather which keeps safe a wonder read with a burnt orange silk page holder . The pages edges are deeply bathed in gilded bright gold and the pages itself are the best quality around. It a pleasure to hold such a finely crafted work of art filled with Dialogues of Plato ,Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Phaedo.  This book is an accomplishment .
