Summary: Outstanding translations by leading contemporary scholars - many commissioned especially for this volume - are presented here in the first single edition to include the entire surviving corpus of works attributed to Plato in antiquity. In his introductory essay, John Cooper gives an account of his presentation of these works, discusses questions surrounding the chronology of their composition, comments on the dialogue form in which Plato wrote, and offers guidance on
approaching the reading and study of Plato's works. Also included are concise introductions by Cooper and Hutchinson to each translation, meticulous annotation, and a comprehensive index.
