Excerpt from Plato's Best Thoughts: Compiled From Prof. Jowett's Translation of the Dialogues of Plato

These quotations are not to be regarded as giving, in every case, the proper views of Plato, or even of Socrates. Other characters, Opposed and refuted, are made to speak. Their words are here given to be read and received as germs of thought, and stimulants to inquiry in the reader, even as they were first written by Plato, rather than as expressions of his own Opinions.

Many fine passages have been necessarily omitted with re gret, because their introduction here would swell this volume beyond the dimensions designed for the ordinary reader. Every theme, therefore, upon which Plato dilates, has not been presented in full. But there has been such a selection as may give the reader a fair idea of his diversity of thought.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 484 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.0in.Excerpt from Platos Best Thoughts: Compiled From Prof. Jowetts Translation of the Dialogues of PlatoThese quotations are not to be regarded as giving, in every case, the proper views of Plato, or even of Socrates. Other characters, opposed and refuted, are made to speak. Their words are here given to be read and received as germs of thought, and stimulants to inquiry in the reader, even as they were first written by Plato, rather than as expressions of his own opinions. Many fine passages have been necessarily omitted with regret, because their introduction here would swell this volume beyond the dimensions designed for the ordinary reader. Every theme, therefore, upon which Plato dilates, has not been presented in full. But there has been such a selection as may give the reader a fair idea of his diversity of thought. While those who are able to purchase, and desirous to peruse the complete translation of Prof. Jowett, will doubtless do this, yet there are many others to whom this volume will be welcome, as giving them the finest wheat of Plato in a ready, readable form, at a moderate rate. Even the possessor and reader of the fuller work may be glad to have with him a compendium of Platonic thought so available, - because alphabetical, - for cursory perusal and casual quotation. It is hoped, at least, by the compiler, that these limited morsels of Platos Hymettian honey will excite the desire for a fuller feast from the rich banquet which Prof. Jowett has so laboriously and sumptuously provided for those who relish true thought and elegant language, whether coming from ancient or modern thinkers. The design at first was to interweave the choicest paragraphs of this Translator from his learned and thoughtful Introductions, but it was found that this would have made too large a book.
