Best known for his influential History of Greece, the historian and politician George Grote wrote this account of Plato's dialogues as a philosophical supplement to the History. First published in 1865, Grote's account of Plato's works includes substantial footnotes and marginalia. With three volumes each running to over six hundred pages, Grote's scholarship is formidably comprehensive. Volume 1, which includes a general preface and extensive introductory material, focuses on Plato's early and transitional dialogues, all of which feature Sokrates. Volume 2 covers the transitional and middle dialogues including Gorgias and Symposium. Volume 3 contains extensive treatments of the Republic and the Laws as well as later dialogues and apocryphal works. It also contains the index to all three volumes. The publication of Plato and the Other Companions of Sokrates confirmed Grote as one of the greatest authorities on Plato in the nineteenth century.
