Description

This book traces the development of Plato's moral philosophy, from the Socratic dialogues to its fullest exposition in the Republic . It discusses Plato's reasons for abandoning or modifying some aspects of Socratic ethics, and for believing that he preserves Socrates' essential insights. A brief and selective discussion of the Statesman , Philebus , and Laws is included. This book will supersede Plato's Moral Thery (Oxford University Press, 1977) by providing a clearer and fuller account of all the important aspects fo Plato's moral thought. It does not presuppose knowledge of Greek or any extensive knowledge of Plato. Philosophers, classicists, political theorists, as well as upper-level undergraduate and graduate students (Courses on Plato and in Greek ethics, ancient philosophy, and political theory).show more
