Our company specializes in dramatized versions of unabridged texts on audio CD and in paperback. They bring primary works to life, especially when they have been translated from another language. For that reason, we develop new versions that are simultaneously faithful to the spirit of the original and intelligible to the general reader.
We began with Platos dialogues, assuming that Plato himself intended these works to be performed, not as the end but the beginning of a dialectical process that lies at the heart of philosophy. We are producing a series of performances in which professionally trained actors play characters such as Socrates, Gorgias, Glaucon, Thrasymachus, and Ion. We find that they help the listener understand the importance of the ideas and concepts more quickly and deeply. The audio performances also make it easier to discuss the issues the dialogues pose and to appreciate their relevance to our own life. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.See all Editorial Reviews
