Summary

A systematic treatment of the question, "What is knowledge?", this masterpiece from Plato's later period features a dialogue between Socrates and his student, Theaetetus. Topics include knowledge as perception, knowledge as true belief, and knowledge as a justified true belief. This edition was translated by the noted classical scholar Francis M. Cornford, who offers extensive ongoing commentaries that provide helpful background information and valuable insights.

Author Biography

Plato ranks among the most familiar ancient philosophers, along with his teacher, Socrates, and his student, Aristotle. In addition to writing philosophical dialogues — used to teach logic, ethics, rhetoric, religion, and mathematics as well as philosophy — he founded Athens' Academy, the Western world's first institution of higher learning.
