Plato: Clitophon (Cambridge Classical Texts and Commentaries)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
The Clitophon, a dialogue generally ascribed to Plato, is significant for focusing on Socrates' role as an exhorter of other people to engage in philosophy. This is the first critical edition to be published in nearly seventy years and the first ever commentary in English. Professor Slings provides a text based on new examination of all relevant manuscripts and accompanies it with a translation. The book also contains a very extensive introduction and commentary.
