    1. Socrates says The unexamined life is not worth living Yet this book actually shows that an examined dialogue is not worth believing The general format of the Socratic dialogues is Socrates Incorrect fact 1 Friend Obviously, Socrates Socrates Correct fact 2 Friend Of course, Socrates Socrates 1 2 3 And a half Friend You are so wise Socrates.Since the arguments are so blatantly made up, it is hard to give any credence to the conclusions Which is a shame because he espouses some noble sentiments Ma [...]

    2. Contains Apology, Crito, Phaedo, Protagoras, Meno, Symposium, and Gorgias In general, these are considered the primary component of Plato s early works, in which he expounds that learned from his teacher Socrates The arguments seem somewhat simplistic by today s standards, but the style and logic clearly represent the timeless fame rendered to Socrates In Apology, Socrates willingly accepts indictment and makes his argument True to his spirit, he makes adequate defense against both classes of ch [...]

    3. I have always been interested in philosophyok a few classes in college and did a little of my own research just because it peaks my interest but I am by no means an expert whatsoever That being said I feel slightly incapable of writing a review on such an epic book if you will My reading comprehension skills are not top notch, but decent For me this book was sometimes easy to understand and sometimes very difficult During the difficult parts I would google cliff s notes so I could try to gain a [...]

    4. Difficult to get through at points, but a good reminder that not much has changed in terms if human society Also interesting that some of the themes of myths told by socrates are being verified by science today.

    5. I will read you next time againthe begin The book was interesting, but again and again, It takes much time to read this book, Sorry Plato

    6. Teaches you how to question day to day life events I would recommend this to every philosophy reader.

    7. These dialogues are the foundation of Western thought justice, virtue, sex, death, wisdom, folly s all here Plato s Socrates is clever and confounding, ingenious and insufferable Sometimes, he is sarcastic and smarmy to the point where you can t stand him At other times, he sounds as lacking in wisdom as he pretends to be But then he will turn around and offer a startling perspective that will make you admire him Although familiar with the content of many of these dialogues, I m glad I waited un [...]

    8. This is a decent compilation and intro to some of Plato s dialogues, though The Republic has been reduced to some of its truncated and finer points One may not always agree with its conclusions, but the most important thing is that the question was raised The Socratic method is certainly a worthwhile tool for educating one s self as well as cultivating understanding in others Even so, as evidenced in these dialogues, it can be easily misapplied assuming that an objective truth is the goal and no [...]

    9. Just copying a piece of a Pro s review of the book that I totally agree with The book is considered the First of a Kind to be structured to display the thoughts and opinions of multiple philosophers thinkers at the same time, instead of just the author leaving you a chance to analyze all of these detailed opinions.

    10. When I was a senior in high school, I took a course called World Literature Some of the books I read in that class were some of the best books I ve ever read in my life Here we read some of Plato s famous dialogues The most memorable is where Socrates drinks hemlock because he talks too much.

    11. If you re a fan of Greek Philosophy, you d know about the endless debates about Socrates thoughts and which of his students has honestly conveyed his views I m Team Plato

    12. It seems the Dialogues of Plato , is one of the few official accounts of Socrates philosophies.Socrates obviously had no paucity of brains His peers in Athens knew that well and most revered him and sought his valuable thoughts, bought his arguments and honoured him as an elite philosopher Yet, the mighty prevailed Reading this book, made me realize how some things never change Might is right and if you are no Socrates, your principles somehow evolve to mirror those of the mighty or the powerfu [...]

    13. I ve finished Apology, a dialogue entitled Ion, Phaedro, the subsequnce of the Apology, adn have now finished Book I of Plato s Republic which still plays into the dialogues, and is not a novel of its own Socrates has a Christ like demeanor, and to me eerily resembles the Christian messiah, although this may be the work of the interpretor Main points in the dialogues raise a candle to not only statements in philosophies, but can summarize entire theologies in the process The conflicts in The Pla [...]

    14. Does it count if I have been reading it for a decade or It puts me to sleep perhaps because I read it before bed , and I disagree with Socrates conclusions on almost everything It is sometimes funny.Socrates makes blanket statements about humanity, and consistently convinces his straight man that he is correct, but it seems like sophistry His generalizations are ideals but not actually true Whomever he is talking with usually makes generalizations that are not true, either, but he non Socrates [...]

    15. Good god, how I hated this book A coworker saw me reading this, and was absolutely flabbergasted I was reading it recreationally She gave me a high five for my effort, and now I know why this book is a fucking bear to read While it was interesting to read how enlightened the Greek civilization was, and some of the political and social ideas of the time, it was also very, very boring My eyes would glaze over with each page, and my brain would shut down Socrates was, no doubt, a master of rhetoric [...]

    16. No me cabe la menor duda de que S crates era un hombre sabio y muy adelantado para su poca y su muerte fue una terrible injusticia, una verdadera l stima ya que hubiera podido aportar a n m s.Yo creo que S crates estaba consciente de que era un hombre que pose a cierto saber, pero era humilde, nunca se conformaba con lo que ten a porque ve a que le faltaba much simo por dominar y deseaba que todos los hombres tuviesen la misma aspiraci n.Algo que me pareci infinitamente hermoso es que l aprend a [...]

    17. The cleverness of Plato shines through in his writing and his way of proving things This does not mean that he s always right His reasonings can be pointed out with many flaws and are not very scientific Plato argues that there s immortality of the soul though he should first question if there s such thing as a soul or not There are lots of talking about gods and the doing of gods But from the viewpoint of an ancient greek, this could be forgiven.Many of his ideas are presented here such as the [...]

    18. Probablement el segon millor llibre de tots els que he llegit que s n pocs Aquesta edici de la magn fica col lecci de divulgaci Sepan cuantos de l editorial Porrua de M xic compta amb un excel lent estudi preliminar de Francisco Larroyo, ideal per als que s apropen a Plat per primer cop Maybe the secondst book I ever read only a few, I m afraid This edition from the great Sepan cuantos collection from Mexican Editorial Porrua counts with an excellent preliminar study from Francisco Larroyo, idea [...]

    19. En la que es posiblemente la madre de todas las obras filos ficas occidentales, Plat n nos muestra en entretenidos di logos la ideolog a de su maestro S crates, junto con su propia visi n del mundo.Los di logos permiten apreciar las legendarias discusiones dije discusiones deb decir, humillaciones, de S crates sobre los sofistas, lo que le da cierta acci n a una obra que por lo contrario ser a bastante tediosa y cansada.El objetivo del autor es mostrar al lector una serie de dilemas morales y fi [...]

    20. Lame bargain basement book Save your dollar Tired of Socrates going around meddling in everyone s business It s actually kind of fun watching him generate a long list of frienemies throughout the city If he were around today he d get a dinger in the left eye every time he approached someone to quiz them Put a sock in a already Luckily, science has come a long way and much of what was unknown to Plato Socrates is known today.Sure, you can put yourself in the context of the times and give them the [...]

    21. The Dialogues of Plato is a collection of some of the famous philosophical ideals of ancient Greek philosopher Plato The book caught my eye because I went to ancient Greece this summer, and I thought the book would have have some references to ancient Greek culture It turned out that the amount of references to ancient Greek culture in the book were minimal, the book spoke mainly of ideas as to how to live your life The book is a pretty challenging read, it made me think hard of how I live my li [...]

    22. I only read Symposium But I did find it comfortable to read which really surprised me for I thought that I would struggle getting through it a bit I am planning to read a analyzation on it next I figure there is a lot I missed in the reading as I didn t analyze everything as I went through it One thing that I found really kinda cool was how much like a bunch of collage students these guys were drinking, thinking, sexing I wonder how old they all were And is that free flow of ideas the ability t [...]

    23. I was surprised to learn that Erich Segal was a classics professor At Harvard, no less Segal s intro is good, but the GR description of this book is wrong it s not the Jowett translation throughout In fact, only Apology and Meno are Jowett I picked this up to read Seth Benardete s translation of Symposium, and one of my other favorite translators, R.E Allen, contributed his translation of Euthyphro I finished those and am working my way through Protagoras It s a nice selection of dialogues, and [...]

    24. Plato s work is brilliant Socrates was the greatest philosopher of all time, and reading about his wisdom and virtue is absolutely moving Socrates is such an inspiration to the world, and this book should be required reading for all human beings to teach them how to be truly good people Socrates is my role model, and this book is absolutely wonderful in showing the incredible wisdom of this divine man.

    25. I gave this five stars because I really enjoy hearing the mind bending thoughts of classical philosophers I do not necessarily support every conclusion, but I cannot argue against the strength of the logic put on display in these discussions.The toughest part for me, as an atheist, is going along with the immortality of the soul and the logic supporting such a thing Besides this obvious conflict in points of view, seeing how Socrates rationalized and deduced was masterful.

    26. A must read for philosophers and theologians alike The Bantam Classic edition is handy for on the go reading, but not so great for deep study, since it includes only some of the Dialogues, translated by various people including Jowett Bantam s format leaves out the Stephanus number system that the better, scholastic editions of the Dialogues include Stephanus numbers coordinate the English text with specific lines in the authoritative Greek text.
