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)
one of the best books not only of plato but also of all philosophers in 4 century B.C. very pleasant to read with plenty of myths, the most important myths of plato's philosophy, like the myth of the cave e.t.c. in this book plato express a lot of his thoughts about the right gonverment and the philosophers-kings/ gonverners.
