There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Also, I never crease my spines. I actually take great pains to avoid it. But this one just went and creased with little effort. All my friends who have this edition experienced the same thing, though some of them don't mind (the heathens)
is also helpful for learning about the Timaeus -- it basically gives a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary. But it's a bit more advanced than Waterfield and also analyzes EVERYTHING, which doesn't help if you're trying to figure out the main themes. I'd suggest looking at Cornford after reading Waterfield, or perhaps while reading Waterfield.

Only way to avoid this is to learn ancient Greek and read it in its original form.
When it comes to the book itself we are talking about a classic and been one of the greatest books and authors throughout time.
Although this version may not do it perfect justice, it is still a good reading and understanding over the ancient philosophical world. This is something every human should read and teach their children.
