Symposium by Plato


£11.99

Translation by Alexander Nehmans and Paul Woodruff

Description

A model of the kind of text one needs for lecture courses: the translation is extremely readable and made even more accessible by intelligent printing decisions (on dividing the text, spacing for clarification, etc.); the notes are kept to a minimum but appear when they are really needed for comprehension and are truly informative. And the introduction admirably presents both basic information and a sense of current scholarly opinion.

  • What was Aesthetics?

    Long considered a moribund discipline, aesthetics has made a surprise comeback.

This seminar led by Jacob Koster asks what aesthetics was before it was subjected to a radical critique since the mid-19th century.
