ISBN: 9781435146181 - The Republic and Other Dialogues

The Republic and Other Dialogues (Barnes and Noble) £25

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 Benjamn 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. The dialogues “Euthyphro,” “Apology,” “Crito” and “Phaedo” chronicle the trial, sentencing, and execution of Socrates for his perceived crimes against the state. The Republic and Other Dialogues is one of Barnes & Noble’s leatherbound classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world’s greatest authors in an exquisitely designed bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensible cornerstone for every home library.
