Description


The newest deluxe edition in the bestselling Capstone Classics Series

This ancient classic has had a make-over. In recent years these Capstone Classic deluxe editions have caught the book buying public's imagination. The volumes of international bestsellers such as Think and Grow Rich and The Art of War have quickly become the market leaders. Now Plato's best known work, one of the most intellectually and historically influential works of philosophy and political theory, has been brought to life in this luxury, hardback, keep-sake edition.

This edition includes:

  • Plato's plans for a perfect society characterised by a blend of wisdom, courage, self-discipline and justice
  • Lessons to learn about living according to eternal truths, instead of existing simply for survival and pleasure
  • A new introduction by Tom Butler Bowdon, the classic personal development expert

About the Author


Plato was a classical Greek philosopher, mathematician, student of Socrates, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens. Along with Socrates and Aristotle, Plato helped to lay the foundations of Western philosophy and science. Tom Butler-Bowdon is the author of five bestselling books on classic self-help and motivational writing. He has been described by USA Today as 'a true scholar of this type of literature'. Tom has also written introductions to the other editions in the Capstone Classics series.
