Plato was born around 2,500 years ago. He lived in a small city-state in Greece and busied himself with the problems of his fellow Greeks, a people living in scattered cities around the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. In all he tried to do for the Greeks he failed. Why, then, should people in the modern world bother to read what he had to say? Does it make sense to go to a Greek thinker for advice on the problems of an age so different from his own? To anyone who has questioned the relevance of Plato to the modern world Richard Crossman s lively book provides a brilliant reply. The problems facing Plato s world bear striking parallels to ours today, the author maintains, so who better to turn to than Plato, the most objective and most ruth observer of the failures of Greek society. Crossman s engaging text provides both an informed introduction to Greek ideas and an original and controversial view of Plato himself."
