Description
In this balanced introduction to Plato's work, Melling brings the philosopher himself to life to provide a better understanding of who he was. He also puts Plato in context by describing the world and the Greek society in which he lived so that the reader can see why his works were important in his own day. With this knowledge we are then better able to understand why, two thousand years after his death, Plato's work is still regarded as significant. 
. . . a book well-worth reading . . . Anyone seeking to find out about Plato would do well to start off with it. TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT
