Lesser Hippias

Gelesen von Kevin Johnson

(4,84 Sterne; 25 Bewertungen)

This work may not be by Plato, or his entirely, but Jowett has offered his sublime translation, and seems to lean towards including it in the canon. Socrates tempted by irony to deflate the pretentious know-it-all Hippias, an arrogant polymath, appears to follow humour more than honour in this short dialogue.
