is the prize-winning first book in the six-book series on the classical
philosophers. The series is designed for beginning and intermediate
philosophy students who would like more depth than they would ordinarily
get from books that give only notes and outlines of the philosopher's
thoughts and theories.
Unlike other philosophy study books, each book in the series focuses on both content and philosophical method. Each chapter breaks down arguments of the philosopher into understandable parts, showing how philosophers reaches their conclusions and how they defend against possible objections.
Each chapter concludes with a set of questions for
thought and discussion. Some of the questions are on topics that provide
an excellent starting point for term papers. References to other books
about the philosopher or the topic can be found at the end of the
chapter, in footnotes, textboxes or at the back of the book.
Understanding Plato contains a complete discussion of four of the early Socratic dialogues (Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Meno) and Plato's longer and more famous work, The Republic.
