Book on Plato

Have you ever wanted a concise but also in-depth exploration of Plato and Plato’s political philosophy? After all, he was not only the first “philosopher” of the West but also the first political philosopher of the West. In fact, removing Plato from the context of political philosophy does tremendous harm to understanding Plato and engaging with his dialogues. In this new book, I gather together some self-published and professionally published essays and articles on Plato’s politics to offer a simple and critical examination of the politics of Plato through a handful of his dialogues including Timaeus, Crito, and The Republic.

You can purchase the book here: The Politics of Plato: A Beginner’s Guide.

    • Thanks for the kind words! After all, as a teacher and writer the whole goal is to make this accessible but remain true to form. To write and speak academese defeats the point; and I, personally, think a lot of stuck up people in the Ivory Tower deliberately try to make sure most people have no idea what they’re talking about. Having gone to Yale, I know first hand that many people like to speak and write in inaccessible language just to feel important and above the masses. It’s saddening, really.

      Cheers!
