Lesser Hippias

Book cover
By: (c. 428 BC - c. 347 BC)

In "Lesser Hippias," Plato tackles the question of what it means to be a virtuous person. Through a dialogue between Socrates and the sophist Hippias, Plato explores the nature of virtue and its relationship to knowledge. The text is thought-provoking and engages the reader in critical thinking about morality and ethics.

Plato's writing is clear and engaging, making complex philosophical ideas accessible to readers of all levels. The dialogue format allows for a dynamic exploration of different viewpoints and challenges the reader to consider their own beliefs about virtue and excellence.

Overall, "Lesser Hippias" is a valuable addition to any philosophical library and is sure to stimulate thought and discussion on the nature of virtue and moral excellence. Plato's insights continue to be relevant and thought-provoking centuries after they were first written.

Book Description:
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.
