Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Plato himself intended these works to be performed, not as an end but the beginning of the dialectical process that lies at the heart of philosophy. These audio perfomances have been used by thousands of students in undergraduate, graduate, and executive education and have helped them understand the ideas, concepts, and issues more quickly and deeply. Many other people have told us that listening to these performances has truly added to their comprehension and enjoyment. The impetus for developing these dramatizations grow out of the teaching and administrative experience of Albert A. Anderson, Professor of Philosopy and Murata Chair of Ethics at Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts. He has also taught at Clark University, Albion College, Bates College, and Rhode Island School of Design.

From the Inside Flap

The concluding books of Plato's Republic reveal the entire ten books of the dialogue in a new perspective. In Book Nine Socrates returns to Glaucon's earlier challenge to justify the claim that a just life is superior to an unjust life. He dos that by showing the life of tyrants compared to a life devoted to the love of wisdom. Book Ten elaborates on the quarrel between poetry and philosophy and concludes with the Myth of Er, a story about a warrior who is killed in battle, travels to another world, and returns to tell a wonderful tale about life and death. CAST: Socrates: William Sigalis; Glaucon: Albert A. Anderson; Adeimantus: Albert Aeed. Directed by Ray Munro. Cover Design: Ideas from Plato's dialogues drawn by Donald Krueger. Running time: 2 hours.
