No current Talk conversations about this book.
the socrates of meno and phaedo is clearly the voice of plato. when socrates goes from questioning everything (the real socrates) to "concluding" things he previously had--or would have--questioned (plato) he becomes a rather uninteresting and mundane character. still, when the true socrates shines he really does shine.

Five Dialogues: Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Meno, Phaedo. Plato, translated by G.M.A. Gruber. 1981. This was the first reading selection for the new book club. I hadn’t read Plato since Dr. Lott’s class in world literature at Montevallo, so reading it was tough, although the more I read the easier it became. After the discussion I want to go back and re-read it! What struck me was the similarities of the ethical concerns in these with Judo-Christian thought.
Every educated person should read these brief dialogs because they are the closest thing to an underpinning of Western philosophy.
Apology, Phaedo, cool, more for historical purposes than any of their philosophical points. I don't think I like the Socratic method.
The second edition of Five Dialogues presents G. M. A. Grube's distinguished translations, as revised by John Cooper for Plato, Complete Works . A number of new or expanded footnotes are also included along with an updated bibliography.
