"Gallop's translation, notes, and introduction to Plato's Phaedo shows first rate literary, philosophical and historical competence."--Professor John J. Glanville, San Francisco State University
Yet, the copy I received clearly states "translated by Benjamin Jowett."
I reached this edition from an Oxford Edition which is translated by Mr. Gallop. I thought I was "safe," even though I understood I was not getting exactly the Kindle version of the Oxford Edition, with all it's introductory material. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0192839535/ref=x_gr_w_bb?ie=UTF8&tag=httpwwwgoodco-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0192839535&SubscriptionId=1MGPYB6YW3HWK55XCGG2)
But I have (once again) been snafu-ed by Amazon's careless handling of listings and comments, especially for Kindle editions.
Although the price was not high and there is introductory material, I thought I was purchasing Mr. Gallop's translation!
(Yes, on hindsight, I can see that I could have caught this from the data at the top of the listing and from the "Look Inside." Given how I reached this listing (from the Oxford Edition) and the material under Reviews, neither of those particularly pacify my frustration.)
Best book ever written about the concept of the soul & their existence coming (nearly) from the very mouth of Socrates before his execution. Beautifully written by Socrates' BFF Plato & with help from the rest of Socrates' crew who eyewitness of the tense final moments.
Awesome, just awesome! Gives one an epic appreciation for our forefathers by living this immortalized tragedy of the Father of Philosophy.
