Solid, thorough and helpful overview of Plato's key concepts,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Understanding Plato (OPUS) (Paperback)
This is a very nice overview of Plato's thinking and writing. It is realtively easy to read and provides very good summary style overview of key texts. The book is very well layed out.
My one caveat is that this may be just a little too deep for someone with no philosophical background (though I would suggest you try it), and on the other hand it is sometimes a little bit too light for someone who wants a serious and critical philosophical review of Platos writing. This would be ideal for someone studying plato at degree level - but probably not sufficient on its own to get into some of the details of his writing.
