educational philosophy.

by sang on Sep 9, 2009

The writings of Plato can be quite an inspiration to anyone's life. While other ordinary books suggest a hazy picture of a philosophy, Plato delineates a detailed image of the simpleste things we view and feel in life.

Wonderful

by Selina on Oct 1, 2007

This is one of the few books I read in Greak Civ that I really liked. The language can be a bit rough to understand in parts, but this is truly on interesting book. This is more a book to read and debate with friends. Plato brings up many points that are important even in today's world. This is not a quick read, but it is well worth the time to read Plato's brilliant work.
