No description available, No description available, The i Phaedo i is acknowledged to be one of Plato s masterpieces showing him both as a philosopher and as a dramatist at the height of his powers For its moving account of the execution of Socrates the i Phaedo i ranks among the supreme literary achievements of antiquity It is also a document crucial to the understanding of many ideas deeply ingrained in western culture and provides one of the best introductions to Plato s thought, Presented in the form of a dialogue between Socrates and three different interlocutors this classic text is an enquiry into the notion of a perfect community and the ideal individual within it During the conversation other questions are raised what is goodness what is reality and what is knowledge The Republic also addresses the purpose of education and the role of both women and men as guardians of the people With remarkable lucidity and deft use of allegory Plato arrives at a depiction of a state bound by harmony and ruled by philosopher kings
