plato is the most widely studied, and probably the greatest, philosopher of all time. he asked his contemporary athenians for answers to all of the difficult and troubling questions that we now call philosophical, and then recorded their ideas in the form of lively dramatic debates. plato also had his own distinct views about almost everything: the nature of knowledge and reality, politics, ethics, mathematics, economics, the size of the ideal city, and much else besides.introducing plato begins by explaining how philosophers like socrates and pythagoras influenced plato's thought. it provides a clear account of plato's puzzling theory of knowledge, and explains how this theory then directed his provocative views on politics, ethics and individual liberty. it offers detailed critical commentaries on all of the key doctrines of platonism, especially the very odd theory of forms, and concludes by revealing how plato's philosophy stimulated the work of important modern thinkers such as karl popper, martha nussbaum and jacques derrida.
