Providing a complete portrait of the enigmatic philosopher, this collection includes six fascinating dialogues: Charmides, Symposium, Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, and Phaedo. Together these eloquent dialogues provide an emotional insight into the life of one of the greatest classical philosophers.
Plato ranks among the most familiar ancient philosophers, along with his teacher, Socrates, and his student, Aristotle.
