Description

This translation of Plato's Sophist conveys the peculiar nature of the doctrines expressed in the Greek text, and it includes an introduction that attempts - without recourse to contemporary technical philosophical ideas - to explain these doctrines from the perspective of how Plato's philosophy was understood by Aristotle and the ancient Platonists. For this reason the book is especially suitable for use in undergraduate courses on Plato and in introductory courses on the history of ancient philosophy.
