For Those Who Love Socrates and Plato- A Final Reminder

A Holiday Gift
Understanding Plato
the award-winning guide to Plato’s Socratic Dialogues and Republic
will be offered free of charge
Saturday and Sunday
April 16 – 17 on

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 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. Detail Page

Understanding Plato is free for two days only: beginning April 16 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time and ending on April 17 at 11:59 p.m. PDT

If you are wary about links, you can get to the  offer page by doing an Amazon or Google search using the words Houlgate, Understanding, Plato, Kindle.

Listen to the Understanding Plato podcast series on any one of several stations — for example, AppleSpreaker, or Podcast Addict.  Sit back with your copy of the book and follow along as Professor Houlgate reads his guide to Plato’s Socratic dialogues and Republic.
