"The unexamined life is not worth living." Socrates' ancient words are still true, and the ideas found in Plato's Dialogues still form the foundation of a thinking person's education. This comprehensive collection contains excellent contemporary translations selected for their clarity, as well as an incisive introduction by Erich Segal, which reveals Plato's life and clarifies the philosophical issues examined in each dialogue. The first of four dialogues recounts the trial and execution of Socrates-the extraordinary tragedy that changed Plato's life and so altered the course of Western thought. Other dialogues create a rich tableau of intellectual life in Athens in the fourth century B.C., and examine the nature of virtue and love, knowledge and truth, society and the individual.
