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.
