Acastos Two Platonic Dialogues, Murdoch

£ 20.00 GBP
Iris Murdoch's imagined dialogue between wise old Socrates and young wild Plato with help from Acastos and his friends. The issues which concern them are familiar ones to us ; how is morality related to religion, can there be religion without mythology? These dialogues are named for Plato's friend Acostos, a less brilliant boy perhaps, but a sturdy honest thinker, able, prompted by Socrates, to put the crucial questions asked by common sense. Great read for those who crave further thought in their every day lives. Condition is immaculate, no signs of use whatsoever.
