Statesman (Focus Philosophical Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Focus Philosophical Library is committed to providing modern students with faithful, clear, and consistent presentations of texts and the rich world part and parcel of those texts.

Plato’s Statesman is the second of a projected trilogy of dialogues, in which an unnamed stranger sets out to satisfy Socrates' desire for an account of sophist, statesman, and philosopher. (The third was never written.)

Eva Brann, Peter Kalkavage, and Eric Salem are Tutors at St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD. They have co-translated Plato’s Sophist and Phaedo for Focus Publishing.

“This will be the preferred edition of Plato’s Statesman for teachers and students who are serious not only about reading the text in good translation, but also about working through its arguments.”

Dustin Gish

College of the Holy Cross
