A good, comprehensive introduction to Plato's thought. Probably too detailed and involved for beginners, but is ideal for students, especially at degree level. Covers the theory of Forms, Plato's ethics, politics, his attitude to art and theology, his relationship with Socrates, as well as some interesting brief chapters on other topics.
