Anonymous Prolegomena to Platonic Philosophy
Edited and translated by L.G. Westerink.
A fascinating work from the Alexandrian School’s late period. The subjects covered include:
- the life of Plato and his motives for writing,
- the characteristics of Platonic philosophy, and
- the dialogues themselves: their elements, titles, divisions, methods of presentation, rules for establishing their central theme, and their order of study.
128 pages. Hardcover.
