Traces the life and ideas of the philosopher and introduces some of the individuals who influenced his thought
  • Wenes
Even though Plato has never been my favorite ancient philosopher; nevertheless, I still read many of his books in the past because he was a student of Socrates’ who never wrote any of his own ideas down. I saw this graphic novel version (Plato for Beginners by Robert Cavalier) and found it a very interesting and enlightening read.

What makes this book especially appealing is that it covers a lot of historical material in its 153 pages because it tells the story not just in words, but in unique graphics as well. This text is organized into twelve areas which includes the following: Who was Plato? History of Greece, the life of Socrates, Plato after the death of Socrates, the path of knowledge, Plato’s first trip to Italy, the path of love, the divided line and the image of the cave, Plato’s second trip to Italy, Plato’s cosmology, Plato’s last work and Plato and Aristotle.

Several of Plato’s ideas and thoughts on the world are explained in clear and easy to understand sections. What makes this an excellent book for anyone who is seeking to understand philosophical ideas is that other important ideas are also presented from other ancient thinkers in Plato’s time. The basic conflict between reality and mysticism is explained in this volume and even Heraclites’s observation that everything is in flux is covered.

Personally, I do not agree with many of the conclusions Plato has created in his philosophy. Further, Plato's Republic is actually the basis for all forms of collectivism (socialism, communism, Nazism etc.) today. The elitist idea of "philosopher kings" is nothing but dictatorship in action. In this respect, Plato’s brightest student, Aristotle surpassed Plato in evaluating philosophical thought into reason, logic and dealing with the facts of reality rather than the mysticism of "forms" preached by Plato.

If you are seeking a simple and clear overview of Plato’s development and ideas as a philosopher, this small illustrated volume is a good place to start.

If you want to introduce anyone you know into philosophy, this is a great book to do it with. If you know nothing about philsophy, read this book! It is a great primer or introduction to Western philosophy including much of Christian philosophy as well. Plato introduces us to Socrates, as well as the idea of Absolute Good which early Christian philosophers connected with God. Plato also introduces us to the idea that the reason why people do wrong is because they don't know what is right. To know the good is to do the good Plato argues, and whether you agree with him or not, it's certainly a good place to start understanding what is right and what is wrong. A great primer on western philosophy and western knowledge. I highly recommend giving this book to yourself and all your friends, anyone you want to see enlightened.

This terrific book is a light and easy read, but contains more information about Plato than I've learned in any other introductory philosophy book. (Did you know that at one point in his life, Plato was taken prisoner by pirates and sold as a slave?) The explanation of The Forms is more clear than I've seen elsewhere.

The book starts with background information on Greek culture and the life of Socrates. Then comes a biographical account of Plato's life, works and travels. Interspersed are summaries of some of his major works, including The Thaetetus, The Phaedrus, The Symposium, The Republic, The Timaeus, and The Laws.

Highly recommended for neophytes!

This concise overview is an easy introduction to Plato, highlighting his Theory of Forms and political ideals. The mini-book does it in the context of the times, explaining Greek history along the way. While many claim, "All of philosophy is a footnote to Plato", the book does justice to post-Greek philosophy, highlighting where Plato's logic lead him wrong.

The book isn't in depth, but it never was intended to be. It's a great 1-2 hour read for those (like this reader) who want an introduction to the great thinker.

I bought this book for my high-school daughter who hates to read, but will benefit from being introduced to challenging ideas. This book was an excellent introduction to Plato's ideas, which are a (if not THE) cornerstone of Western Philosophy.
