Description

Plato's Ten Dialogues by Plato. Plato was one of the first philosophers in the Western philosophical tradition, and one of the - greatest philosophers of all time. Born in Athens in 427 or 428 years Before Christ, in a family of aristocrats. He studied under Socrates, who later appears as a character in many of his dialogues. His works are in the form of dialogue, where several people lead a discussion on various topics. Although the precise dialogues are not known, many of them are preserved. Plato's dialogues are expressed in three categories. - Early dialogues - They Socrates is the protagonist. It is believed that in them he expresses his own views. These are the only other dialogues of Socrates' teachings, so are known as the - Socratic dialogues. - Secondary dialogues - Here Plato expresses his own views in the guise of Socrates. Most - important works in this period Symposium and Republic. - Late dialogues - These are the most - difficult works of Plato. They are - deep in the development of philosophy, from those who are wounded in the earliest periods.
