"The Being of the Beautiful" collects Plato s three dialogues, the
"Theaetetus," "Sophist," and "Statesmen," in which Socrates
formulates his conception of philosophy while preparing for trial.
Renowned classicist Seth Benardete s careful translations clearly
illuminate the dramatic and philosophical unity of these dialogues
and highlight Plato s subtle interplay of language and structure.
Extensive notes and commentaries, furthermore, underscore the
trilogy s motifs and relationships.
The translations are masterpieces of literalness. . . . They are
honest, accurate, and give the reader a wonderful sense of the
Greek. Drew A. Hyland, "Review of Metaphysics""
