Product description

This new translation of what may be Plato's most elusive dialogue provides a faithful rendering of the Greek text without sacrificing clarity in English. Gill's extensive introduction explores and elucidates the dialogue's central themes and offers a compelling interpretation of issues current in scholarly debates on the Parmenides. Also included are helpful notes, an Analysis of the deductions in Part II, and a select bibliography.

Review quote

Gill's and Ryan's Parmenides is, simply, superb: the Introduction, more than a hundred pages long, is transparently clear, takes the reader meticulously through the arguments, avoids perverseness, and still manages to make sense of the dialogue as a whole; there is a fine selective bibliography; and those parts of the translation I have looked at in detail suggest that it too is very good indeed. --Christopher Rowe, Phronesis
