Summary:

In an age when philosophers had scarcely glimpsed the horizons of the mind, a boy named Aristocles decided to forgo his ambitions as a wrestler. Adopting the nickname Plato, he embarked instead on a life in philosophy. In 387 B.C. he founded the Academy, the world's first university, and taught his students that all we see is not reality but merely a reproduction of the true source. And in his famous Republic, he described the politics of "the highest form of state."

Genres:

  • Gail Fitch

    The book was succinctly written and provided an adequate overview of Plato and his contemporaries. Audiobooks is a pleasant option when combing through required reading.

  • Anonymous

    The book did explain Plato. It was a little difficult to absorb it all through. For us Plato newbies, it was a good introduction.

  • Larry Longtin

    Not a bad way to get a feel for Plato. I tried reading "The Republic" a few years back, but I didn't get too much out of it. This CD also gives you a fairly balanced perspective on it as well, describing how Plato fits into the big picture.
