Book Description:

Theaetetus, the Sophist, and the Statesman are a trilogy of Platonic dialogues that show Socrates formulating his conception of philosophy as he prepares the defense for his trial. Originally published together as The Being of the Beautiful, these translations can be read separately or as a trilogy. Each includes an introduction, extensive notes, and comprehensive commentary that examines the trilogy's motifs and relationships.

'Seth Benardete is one of the very few contemporary classicists who combine the highest philological competence with a subtlety and taste that approximate that of the ancients. At the same time, he as set himself the entirely modern hermeneutical task of uncovering what the ancients preferred to keep veiled, of making explicit what they indicated, and hence...of showing the naked ugliness of artificial beauty.' Stanley Rose, Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal

Seth Benardete (1930 2001) was professor of classics at New York University. He was the author or translator of many books, most recently The Argument of the Action, Plato's 'Laws,' and Plato's 'Symposium,' all published by the University of Chicago Press.
