'A Plato Primer' introduces beginning students & the general reader to the main theses, concepts & arguments in Plato's philosophy. Subtle, versatile & multi-faceted though Plato's thought undoubtedly is, it has a core that needs to be explored & savoured. Evans presents this core, as it appears over a large range of Plato's works.

Book Description Book 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.'
