A lively dialogue between a foreign philosopher and a powerful statesman, Plato's Laws reflects the essence of the philosopher's reasoning on political theory and practice. It also embodies his mature and more practical ideas about a utopian republic. Plato's discourse ranges from everyday issues of criminal and matrimonial law to wider considerations involving the existence of the gods, the nature of the soul, and the problem of evil.
This translation of Plato's Laws by the distinguished scholar Benjamin Jowett is an authoritative choice for students of philosophy, political science, and literature. It is included among Dover Publications' Philosophical Classics, a series that comprises the major works of ancient and modern world philosophy. Low-priced, high-quality, and unabridged, these editions are ideal for teachers and students as well as for general readers.
