    Review quote
    "I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciate this book, which is clearly the work of a scholar who has integrated many aspects of classics, philosophy and philology into an exceptionally useful, engaging and accessible guide to two dialogues of Plato. Such work is not easy and Bailly has presented us with a very frank and useful introduction that shows his skill as a philosopher, commentator, and classicist."G.S. Bowe, Bilkent UniversityBryn Mawr Classical Review May 2004For the complete review, search on http: //ccat.sas.upenn.edu/bmcr/
