Description

Many books have been written about Plato's dialogues and philosophy, but most miss what Carol Dunn considers the most important part: the action that follows the thinking. Specifically, she argues that scholars often neglect to explore what should be done with the knowledge that is gained.

In this insightful book, Dunn proposes that knowledge itself is important not in an abstract way but because of how it determine the meaning and purpose of our own lives, and demonstrates how the dialogues embody both a rational philosophy and a system of spiritual and religious principles whose purpose is to lay out the path to enlightenment.

This book is not just for scholars of Plato's philosophy, but for anyone who wishes to penetrate an ancient, though largely overlooked, path to initiation.
