R. E. Allen's superb new translations of four Socratic dialogues -- Ion, Hippias Minor, Laches, and Protagoras -- bring these classic texts to life for modern readers. Allen introduces and comments on the dialogues in an accessible way, inviting the reader to reexamine the issues Plato continually raises in his works: Is virtue an art? Are wisdom and courage logically equivalent? Is virtue knowledge? Is to know the good to do it?

"Allen's work will replace existing alternatives. His accurate translation and fresh approach will challenge the winds of doctrine that have dominated Platonic scholarship and interpretation for decades". -- John P. Anton, University of South Florida

"An important event of the world of scholarship". -- London Review of Books

"This volume contains an elegant translation and a useful essay". -- Classical World
