David Bostock examines the theories and arguments put forward by Plato in his Phaedo, in which he attempts to show that the soul is immortal. This excellent introduction to Plato's often difficult arguments discusses such important philosophical problems as the nature of the mind, the idea ofpersonal identity, the question of how we understand language, and the concept of cause, reason, and explanation.
David Bostock is at Merton College, Oxford.

Editorial Reviews

'Bostock's book is a good analysis of the Phaedo; it is written in clear, lucid style and the author has a neat turn of witty phraseology.'The Greek Gazette
