An introductory survey of Plato's philosophy. Thematically structured, the book begins with Platos principal contribution to metaphysics, the Theory of Forms, which forms a necessary background to his thought in many areas. His theory of knowledge, which is intimately linked with the Forms is explored in detail along with Platos views of the soul, an important theme in itself and an entry point to discussion of his ethics, one of Platos major concerns. Finally, the book deals with two areas of Platos thought which have had an especially important historical impact, not confined to academic philosophy: his theory of God and nature, and his aesthetics. Throughout, Mason highlights the continuing themes in Platos work and how they develop from one dialogue to another.
