Summary:Politics and persuasion, reason and religion, science and success,
appearance and reality, belief and knowledge, ethics and egoism.
Reason and Persuasion provides a new look at old issues through the
lens of three classic dialogues by Plato: Euthyphro, Meno and
Republic, Book I. These dialogues appear here in fresh translations,
by Belle Waring, with general introduction, commentary chapters and
illustrations by John Holbo. The text is lively, accessible, and
intended for use as an introduction to philosophy, but is substantive
enough to be of interest to the more advanced students as well.
