Plato
Summary:Burnyeat analyzes the dialogues of Plato. Seeing Plato's ideas initially as extentions of those of his teacher Socrates, Burnyeat explains the development and content of Plato's original doctrines of knowledge as virtue, the immortality and tripartite division of the soul, and the theory of forms (ideas).
