Early Socratic Dialogues, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

Rich in drama and humour, they include the controversial Ion, a debate on poetic inspiration; Laches, in which Socrates seeks to define bravery; and Euthydemus, which considers the relationship between philosophy and politics.

Together, these dialogues provide a definitive portrait of the real Socrates and raise issues still keenly debated by philosophers, forming an incisive overview of Plato's philosophy.

Commentary in this Penguin edition is maddening. Constantly interrupting and pre-empting the dialogue while managing to bring relatively little to the table, it's the equivalent of watching a film with someone who's constantly gabbing on about 'oh! I love this bit - this is where they...' until you just want to smother them.
