The Phaedrus of Plato: A Translation with Notes and Dialogical Analysis

Author: 

Quandt, Kenneth Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley

This pioneering translation of Plato’s Phaedrus, with detailed summary and full philological and exegetical notes taking into consideration all commentaries since Hermias, followed by a painstaking dialogical analysis of the text that shows what we must think at every moment in order to understand the thinking that brings the Greek text to life.

In Kenneth Quandt’s treatment, Plato’s seminal work is allowed to create its own horizon and a new and profoundly unified interpretation emerges: Socrates’s conversation with Phaedrus reaches a vision of eros that explains the paradoxes of human nature, explodes the zero-sum game of master and slave, exposes the crabbed fetishism of the written word, and releases the mind to a life of contemplation fixed in a cloudless noon.
