A Friendly Companion to Plato's Gorgias

Synopsis

A comprehensive study of "one of the most elusive and subtle" of all the Platonic dialogues. The Gorgiasbegins with a discussion of the nature and value of rhetoric and develops into an impassioned argument for the primacy of absolute right (as expressed by conscience) in the regulation of both public and private life. Plochmann and Robinson closely analyze this great dialogue in the first two-thirds of their book, turning in the final four chapters to a broader discussion of its unity, sweep, and philosophic implications.
