View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The book is written for anyone seriously interested in Plato's thought and in the history of literary theory or of rhetoric. No knowledge of Greek is required. The focus of this account is on how the resources both of persuasive myth and of formal argument, for all that Plato sets them in strong contrast, nevertheless complement and reinforce each other in his philosophy.

From the Back Cover:

This marvelously conceived new translation of Plato's most important dialogue will set the standard for classroom use for many years to come... The authors' imaginative new interpretation will inspire students and generate scholarly controversy - and is thus certain to accomplish what it suggests is the true aim of Socratic inquiry: the weaving, unweaving, and perpetual re-weaving of the Logos.

— Dr. George R. Lucas, Jr., Professor of Philosophy, US Naval Academy, Annapolis

Modern students can now appreciate the wisdom of the world’s greatest thinkers. Through clear, faithful translations, renowned scholars have made classical philosophical texts
accessible and inspirational.
