Review: Enhance my knowledge of the world changing philosophers

 

Author: joseph r banks

Rating: 4

Review: When I bought the book over a year ago a was transitioning from GCSE to A level and now I am taking A level philosophy. It was a tough read over the summer but as I've eased into the language I can take in the theory and ideas much better. The book is a great recount of Socrates and I would recommend it as rudimentary reading.

  • Waterstones Plato: Theaetetus and Sophist

    Price: £18.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Plato's Theaetetus and Sophist are two of his most important dialogues, and are widely read and discussed by philosophers for what they reveal about his epistemology and particularly his accounts of belief and knowledge. Although they form part of a single Platonic project, these dialogues are not usually presented as a pair, as they are in Christopher Rowe's new and lively translation. Offering a high standard of accuracy and readability, the translation reveals the continuity between these dialogues and others in the Platonic corpus, especially the Republic. The supporting introduction and notes help the reader to follow the arguments as they develop, explaining their structure, context and interpretation. This new edition challenges current scholarly approaches to Plato's work and will pave the way for fresh interpretations both of Theaetetus and Sophist and of Plato's writings in general.

    Description: In this engaging introduction, Constance Meinwald shows how Plato has shaped the landscape of Western philosophy. She provides much-needed historical context, and helps readers grapple with Plato's distinctive use of highly crafted literary masterpieces for philosophical purposes. Meinwald examines some of Plato's most famous discussions of human questions, concerning er?s,the capacities and immortality of our psyche, human excellence and the good life, and Plato's controversial ideas about culture, society, and political organization. She shows how Plato makes a sketch of his theory of Forms foundational in this work, and she offers illuminating readings of texts concerned with the development of the theory and its relationship to Greek science and mathematics. Throughout, Meinwald draws expertly on Plato's dialogues to present a lively and accessible picture of his philosophy. Including a chronology, glossary of terms, and suggestions for further reading, Plato is an ideal introduction to arguably the greatest of all Western philosophers, and is essential reading for students of ancient philosophy and classics.
