Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Alcibiades was widely read in antiquity as the very best introduction to Plato. In spite of its ancient reputation, many modern scholars have thought that the Alcibiades is not by Plato and it has therefore lacked a decent commentary. This edition remedies that situation. The notes explain difficulties of linguistic, literary and philosophical detail. The introduction includes a discussion of the dialogue's authenticity, and of the consequences that acknowledging its authenticity has for our conception of Plato's intellectual development.

Synopsis:

The first modern edition of Plato's Alcibiades, aimed at both students and scholars.

Synopsis:

Ancient readers regarded this work, which is written in dialogue form, as the very best introduction to Plato. It represents Socrates meeting the notorious Athenian politician, Alcibiades, as he is about to enter adult life, and using all his wiles in an attempt to win him for philosophy. This, the first modern edition of the work, presents an up-to-date Greek text, a commentary explaining details of literary, linguistic and philosophical interest, and an introduction which discusses the dialogue’s authenticity and sets it in the context of Plato’s work.
