9780300074383: The Dialogues of Plato, Volume 3: Ion, Hippias Minor, Laches, Protagoras (Vol 3)

R. E. Allen's superb new translations of four Socratic dialogues -- Ion, Hippias Minor, Laches, and Protagoras -- bring these classic texts to life for modern readers. Allen introduces and comments on the dialogues in an accessible way, inviting the reader to reexamine the issues Plato continually raises in his works: Is virtue an art? Are wisdom and courage logically equivalent? Is virtue knowledge? Is to know the good to do it?

"Allen's work will replace existing alternatives. His accurate translation and fresh approach will challenge the winds of doctrine that have dominated Platonic scholarship and interpretation for decades". -- John P. Anton, University of South Florida

"An important event of the world of scholarship". -- London Review of Books

"This volume contains an elegant translation and a useful essay". -- Classical World

Book Description Yale University Press, United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. 221 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. R.E. Allen s superb new translations of four Socratic dialogues-Ion, Hippias Minor, Laches, and Protagoras-bring these classic texts to life for modern readers. Allen introduces and comments on the dialogues in an accessible way, inviting the reader to reexamine the issues continually raised in Plato s works. In his detailed commentary, Allen closely examines the major themes and central arguments of each dialogue, with particular emphasis on Protagoras. He clarifies each of Plato s arguments and its refutation; places the themes in historical perspective; ties each theme to interpretations of rival translations; and links the philosopher s thought to trends in late modern philosophy. Topics discussed include: whether virtue is an art, whether wisdom and courage are logically equivalent, whether virtue is knowledge, and whether to know the good is to do it. Allen connects his discussion of these issues to the Benthamite tradition of hedonism and utilitarianism and to the ethical theories of Mill, Sidgwick, Moore, and Freud.
