A Holiday Gift
the award-winning guide to Plato’s Socratic Dialogues and Republic
will be offered free of charge
Saturday and Sunday
April 16 – 17 on Amazon.com
This offer is for the eBook edition only. It can be immediately downloaded and is readable on any device.
Understanding Plato is primarily a study guide for beginning philosophy and political science students, not a monograph for advanced scholars. Although it was written as a companion to Plato’s dialogues, it not only gives clear explanations of his main ideas, it also teaches students how to think critically about philosophical problems. Each chapter concludes with a set of questions for thought and discussion.
Please go to the Amazon.com detail page for Understanding Plato, look at the Table of Contents, read a few pages and some of the book reviews. If you like what you see, get your copy and please tell students, friends and colleagues about this offer.
