5.0 out of 5 stars an impressive package and a bargain, 4 July 2012
This review is from: Essential Plato, The (Paperback)
These are snippets of Benjamin Jowett's translation of the greek wrestler, Plato.
Each part has a little intro by that annoying populariser of philosophy, Alain de Botton. Now I too can't stand de Bottom but this is a great package with a big bold fonts and nice white paper. Its a nice book to hold in your hands and a steel at this price. Don't be put off by what the academics tell you about the translations in here. They are rivers of gold. There is nothing wrong with the translation made by the old Victorian Jowett. You can get Jowett online but its hard to read off digital screen. You can read this wonderful book in the bath or on the toilet. Enough said, so give yourself a treat and get this wonderful volume!
