Summary: Benjamin Jowett's translations of Plato have long been classics in their own right. In this volume, Professor Hayden Pelliccia has substantially revised Jowett's renderings of five of Plato's key dialogues, giving us a fresh, modern Plato faithful to both Jowett's best elements and the inimitable original. Ion takes up the question of poetry and introduces the Socratic method. Protagoras discusses poetic interpretation and shows why cross-examination is the best way
to get at the truth. Phaedrus takes on the nature of rhetoric, psychology, and love, as does the famous Symposium. Finally, Apology gives us Socrates' art of persuasion put to the ultimate test - defending his own life.
