Translated from the original Greek by A.D. Lindsay, two-page color reproduction of Raphael's The School of Athens precedes text. Plato's most well-known work, in which he presents his theory of political philosophy, explaining that the city is 'the soul writ large.' Plato (428/427 BC – 348/347 BC), was a Classical Greek philosopher, mathematician, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. Along with his mentor, Socrates, and his student, Aristotle, Plato helped to lay the foundations of Western philosophy and science. Plato was originally a student of Socrates, and was as much influenced by his thinking as by his apparently unjust execution.
