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.
