Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Outstanding translations by leading contemporary scholars--many commissioned especially for this volume--are presented here in the first single edition to include the entire surviving corpus of works attributed to Plato in antiquity. In his introductory essay, John Cooper explains the presentation of these works, discusses questions concerning the chronology of their composition, comments on the dialogue form in which Plato wrote, and offers guidance on approaching the reading and study of Plato's works.

Also included are concise introductions by Cooper and Hutchinson to each translation, meticulous annotation designed to serve both scholar and general reader, and a comprehensive index. This handsome volume offers fine paper and a high-quality Smyth-sewn cloth binding in a sturdy, elegant edition.

Book News Annotation:

The first single edition to include the entire corpus of Plato's works, handsomely bound and featuring new translations by contemporary scholars. Editor Cooper (philosophy, Princeton U.) supplies an introductory essay, cogently discussing questions concerning chronology of composition, commenting on the dialogue form, and offering guidance on reading (and appreciating) Plato's works. Each translation also features an introduction by the editors and careful annotation.
