About the Book

Ian Crombie’s impressive volumes provide a comprehensive interpretation of Plato’s doctrines. Volume 1 contains topics of more general interest and is mainly concerned with what Plato has to say in the fields of moral philosophy, political philosophy, the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of religion.


‘The work as a whole will be an excellent guide for students of general philosophy but also an indispensable textbook for specialist students of Greek philosophy’ The Times Literary Supplement
