About the Author

Plato ranks among the most familiar ancient philosophers, along with his teacher, Socrates, and his student, Aristotle. In addition to writing philosophical dialogues — used to teach logic, ethics, rhetoric, religion, and mathematics as well as philosophy — he founded Athens' Academy, the Western world's first institution of higher learning.

panagiota-petra0, November 28, 2009 (view all comments by panagiota-petra0)
the most magnificent dialogue of plato about love, like ancient greeks philosophers were thinking about it. i totally recomend it to everyone,love is still an essential part of our lives, it would be nice to see it in a more phiolosophical view like ancient greeks. dover did an excellent job again.
