9780198249184: Plato's Phaedo

David Bostock examines the theories and arguments put forward by Plato in his Phaedo, in which he attempts to show that the soul is immortal. This excellent introduction to Plato's often difficult arguments discusses such important philosophical problems as the nature of the mind, the idea of personal identity, the question of how we understand language, and the concept of cause, reason, and explanation.

About the Author:

David Bostock is at Merton College, Oxford.

Review:


"An excellent accompaniment for undergraduates (and graduates) reading the Phaedo. Clearly and engagingly written, offering analytic detail without jargon or obfuscation."--Dirk T. D. Held, Connecticut College


"Intended for beginners, this highly competent introduction to one of Plato's most important dialogues belongs in every university collection."--Choice


"Can indeed be recommended to...[a] wide readership....[It] should help readers to enjoy thinking about the points it discusses, both as issues in Plato scholarship and as philosophical problems."--The Philosophical Review


"Adds a new and helpful perspective to the ever growing body of scholarship on this pivotal dialogue."--Ancient Philosophy


"Despite Bostock's own modest disclaimer, there is certainly plenty to interest what the jacket calls 'more seasoned readers of Plato' as well as the beginner."--Times Literary Supplement
