about

There is a well-known saying that the whole of Western Philosophy is footnotes of Plato.  This is because his writings have set the schema that philosophy can be said to have followed ever since.  Following under the teachings of Socrates, Plato's works are among the world's greatest literature. The Laws are discussed by three representatives of Athens, Crete, and Sparta. The Athenian, as might be expected, is the protagonist or chief speaker, while the second place is assigned to the Cretan, who, as one of the leaders of a new colony, has a special interest in the conversation. At least four-fifths of the answers are put into his mouth. The Spartan is every inch a soldier, a man of few words himself, better at deeds than words.
