Book Description

Sept. 1 2007 Coffee with...Series
Around 428 BC, Plato was born into one of Athens’s most aristocratic
 families, and ultimately gathered around him some of the greatest minds of his age. Travel back to ancient Greece with Professor Emeritus of Philosophy Donald R. Moor and author Robert M. Pirsig (Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance) to meet this legendary thinker. In addition to expanding upon his famous allegory of the cave, Plato talks about learning through dialogue, the primacy of good and the price of wrong doing, democracy, freedom and censorship, women’s equality, love, and mathematics, and the search for truth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small but enjoyable dialogues. May 29 2009
By Todd E. Babcock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This literal and physically small book is a great and approachable introduction to the philosopher. I'm glad it wasn't titled 'Coffees with' because certainly one can finish it over a taller cup. The book is written in a series of dialogues with the philosopher as if someone with modern day queries was able to have the man alive and accounting for his writings. Considering the nature of Plato's writings this dialgue nature of discovery seems quite appropriate. Fun, brisk and not without a sense of humor, you could do worse for an introduction to the greater, expansive lexicon...just don't expect this to keep you company long.
