Book Description:
This volume is an introduction to Plato's dialogues and the ideas they explore, so serving as a readable account of his writing. It also gives guidance on the historical context in which his thoughts were formed and invites inquiry into his many ideas. 'This book can be highly recommended as one of the clearest and most concise introductions in English to the full range of Plato s dialogues and the ideas explored in them. While giving priority to a critical engagement with individual works, it also provides guidance on the historical context in which Plato's thinking developed.' Stephen Halliwell, University of St Andrews 'Christopher Rowe s Plato, ahead of its time when first published in 1984 is highly welcome in a new reprint. From the start, Rowe establishes that the reader of Plato's dialogues encounters a challenging form of philosophy, one which demands both intellectual rigor and personal response, one which challenges the reader both to systematize the ideas in different dialogues and to do justice to them in their distinct dramatic settings. Rowe s Plato invites us to shared inquiry rather than deference to established positions, and this clear and subtle introduction will draw the beginner into fruitful engagement with Plato's many ideas.' Julia Annas, University of Arizona
