Each of these pages has a number of useful features that introduce the corresponding Platonic text and may assist in its study:

Each dialogue link leads to an entry page linked to a further page of resources on that dialogue. Headings include: Settings, Character, Style, etc.; Relationships; Synopsis and Themes; Outline; Commentary, and Bibliography [Links for the entry pages for material on the letters lack the first of these links]. Scrolling down on the entry page will lead to a table of External Links.

Readers new to Plato who would like some backgraound can peruse the Introductory Materials I have posted under the following links:


Interesting quotations about Plato may be found here. I plan to add to this list from time to time.



Pages of links to external resources pertaining to philosophy generally may be found on my pages devoted to various periods and subdivisions of philosophy, which come under the general title:
