Plato for EveryoneBook - 2013
How do we decide what is good and bad? What is virtue? What constitutes a meaningful life? These are some of the intractable, still-relevant questions that the ancient Greek philosopher Plato grappled with 2,500 years ago. Unfortunately, Plato's dialogues, featuring his famous mentor Socrates, often prove difficult to understand for many contemporary readers. Tucker remedies these problems by recasting five of Plato's dialogues into accessible and entertaining short stories in modern settings.
