Book Description

27 Dec 2013 All That Matters

In Plato: All That Matters, Ieuan Williams argues that no one can study philosophy or politics without an awareness of Plato, whose work has reverberated through 2500 years of philosophy and history.

Dr Ieuan Williams explains both what Plato thought, and why this continues to matter today. In the ten years of research which have led up to this book, Dr Williams has assessed the relevance of Plato to everything from the philosophy of education to media theory. This important book shows how Plato remains as relevant today as he has ever been.

This accessible and readable book will appeal both to students and general readers, giving a fascinating introduction to Plato - and what matters most about his work.
