STATESMAN By Plato Translated by Benjamin Jowett Contents INTRODUCTION AND ANALYSIS. Statesman introduction and analysis. In the Phaedrus, the Republic, the Philebus, the Parmenides, and the Sophist, we may observe the tendency of Plato to combine two or more subjects or different aspects of the same subject in a single dialogue. In the Sophist and Statesman especially we note that the discussion is partly regarded as an illustration of method, and that analogies are brought from afar which throw light on the main subject. or with our will, and whatever be his mode of treatment,-incision, burning, or the infliction of some other pain,-whether he practises out of a book or not out of a book, and whether he be rich or poor, whether he purges or reduces in some other way, or even fattens his patients, is a physician all the same, so long as.

The Statesman is Plato's neglected political work, but it is crucial for an understanding of the development of his political thinking. In some respects it continues themes from the Republic, particularly the importance of knowledge as entitlement to rule. But there are also changes: Plato has dropped the ambitious metaphysical synthesis of the Republic, changed his view of the moral psychology of the citizen, and revised his position on the role of law and institutions

For someone whose influence has been so profound on Western thinking remarkably little is known of the Greek philosopher and thinker Plato. Due to the means and social status of his family Plato was most probably educated by some of Athens' finest teachers. The curriculum would have been rich and varied and include the doctrines of Cratylus and Pythagoras as well as Parmenides. Plato served in the cause of Athens and its Allies between 409 and 404 . The comprehensive defeat of Athens by Sparta ended the Athenian democracy, although after a brief oligarchy it was restored. It was during this time that Plato began his writings, a remarkable number of which survive to this day.

translated by Benjamin Jowett. New York, C. Scribner's sons. Sophist, statesman, philosopher! O my dear Theodorus, do my ears truly witness that this is the estimate formed of them by the great calculator and geometrician? Theod. with our will, and whatever be his mode of treatment-incision, burning, or the infliction of some other pain-whether he practises out of a book or not out of a book, and whether he be rich or poor, whether he purges or reduces in some other way, or even fattens his patients, is a physician all the same, so long as he.

The Statesman (Greek: Πολιτικός, Politikós; Latin: Politicus), also known by its Latin title, Politicus, is a Socratic dialogue written by Plato. The text depicts a conversation among Socrates, the mathematician Theodorus, another person named Socrates (referred to as "Socrates the Younger"), and an unnamed philosopher from Elea referred to as "the Stranger" (ξένος, xénos).

byPlato,Benjamin Jowett (Translator). The Statesman, or Politikos in Greek and Politicus in Latin, is a four part dialogue contained within the work of Plato. The text is a dialogue between Socrates and his student Theodorus, another student named Socrates (referred to as Young Socrates), and an unknown philosopher expounding the ideas of the statesman. This unknown philosopher from Elea is referred to in the text as the "visitor". The text is a continuation of the dialogue preceding it, named Sophist, which is a dialogue between Socrates, Theaetetus and the visitor.

THEODORUS: By Ammon, the god of Cyrene, Socrates, that is a very fair hit; and shows that you have not forgotten your geometry. I will retaliate on you at some other time, but I must now ask the Stranger, who will not, I hope, tire of his goodness to us, to proceed either with the Statesman or with the Philosopher, whichever he prefers.

This is a very fine and inexpensive edition of Plato's Statesman. It also includes a lengthy introduction and a few annotations here and there. This is probably the most sensibly priced edition of Statesman on Amazon. A great book!

Probably best known for The Republic, this is a very similar selection from Plato where he wrestles with the best form of government understanding the obvious restrictions and limitations of mankind. Plato considers the monarchy, or the benevolent rule of one good man, to be the best and most desired form of governance. A democracy, or a rule by the mob, is the least effective and desirable form according to Plato. But, without a biblical worldview in which to frame his understanding, Plato fails to recognize and account for the influence of the fall of man and man's sinful nature. Without an appreciation for divine revelation and the power of the Holy Spirit to regenerate man from his fallen state, Plato also fails to recognize the power and influence that God's Word and the presence of the Holy Spirit can have on a man's thoughts and life. While Plato limits mankind by some unknown formula so that only a few may rise to political knowledge, he finds it impossible to know whether a ruler will be a tyrant or a statesman. And while laws may confine and restrain evil, they can also hamper and restrict good. Plato's world is dominated by an appreciation for the state, but his understanding and appreciation for mankind or humanity demonstrates his shortsightedness in his approach to finding true statesmen. True statesmen are not products of their culture; in contrast they are generally those who cut against the prevailing grain of society. True statesmen have an internal moral compass pointed toward absolute truth that guides and directs even in the midst of societal blindness and confusion. Plato desires to produces these men, but his formula is lacking and deficient. The Statesman is a difficult read with mostly conversations that seem to run tangent to the real issue at hand.
