Until now no English translation existed of the Statesman (one of Plato's central works on politics, and on much else besides) which was both accurate and usable: nor was there a modern commentary which would help the reader through the argument, which was, in some parts, likely to be inaccessible without a guide. This new edition fills both gaps, being aimed especially, like other volumes in the Aris PHIllips series of texts, at students and other readers with little or no knowledge of the original language. This dialogue is of interest to philosophers and students of political theory as well as to classicists. Greek text with facing translation, notes and more
