A favorable review of our fine book!: "There
is no dearth of textbooks offering an introduction to Plato's thought,
but Holbo's stands apart in the scope of its introductory material and
its user-friendly style ..." Belle's translations get a favorable look-in as well.
It's quite a relief not just to get a good review from such a respectable site but to get such a straight review. I've been a bit worried that the book's solidity might be overlooked, even by people who like the cute illustrations. So I'm very glad to read this sort of thing: "One
concern I had reading the text with a mind to possibly adopting it for
a course is that the introductory material is almost too thorough."
I'll take that as a compliment.
