"A Plato Primer" introduces beginning students and the general reader to the main theses, concepts and arguments in Plato's philosophy. Subtle, versatile and multi-faceted though Plato's thought undoubtedly is, it has a core that needs to be explored and savoured. Evans presents this core, as it appears over a large range of his works, spread out over many decades of composition and many philosophical topics. Through all this diversity Plato's original philosophical personality shines through. Evans approaches the material thematically, in terms of modern philosophical categories, in seven main chapters. Within each of these individual treatments Evans follows the lines of argument in the main works of Plato that explore them. Indications about how to pursue given topics in the secondary literature are given in the helpful guide to further reading.

Review:

"There is a philosophical classiness and freshness about this book that should give it an immediate place on reading lists." --Professor C. J. Rowe, University of Durham

Book Description Condition: New. Acumen, Durham, 2010. IX,163p. Paperback. 'In a mere 143 pages the recently deceased1 J.D.G. Evans provides a critical summary of Plato's contributions to a variety of philosophical topics that is at once comprehensive and incisive. (.) In sum, then, this is a superb survey of Platonic thought from a mature scholar, demonstrating both range and concision. A Plato primer will take an intelligent and determined reader of Plato a long way in a short time towards grasping the shape of the debates, opened up by Plato, which have gone on to form the course of philosophy.' (CATHAL WOODS in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2011.01.17). Condition: New. Seller Inventory # 24517
