Socrates.; Philosophy; Plato
"Plato's dialogues in condensed translations that (1) preserve the flavor of the original Greek, and (2) enable the general reader or student to easily follow the thread of Plato's arguments, which are the source of our ideas on: romantic love, immortality of the soul, heaven and hell, divine judgment, social contract, political science, felicific calculus, penal reform, equality of women, child rearing (including prenatal care and the importance of rocking infants), universal education (divided into kindergarten, elementary school, and high school), eugenics, behavioral conditioning, professional military, urban planning, marriage counseling, regulation of environmental pollution, and state mandated care for the aged and name only a few. This book will appeal to students, teachers, and readers studying Plato who want to easily follow his arguments but at the same time gain insight into the characters of the dialogues and their lives."--BOOK JACKET.
