Excerpt from Summary and Analysis of the Dialogues of Plato

The reader will hardly find within the same compass so thorough an abstract of what is to be met with in Plato. In Ast's Lexicon, or Mitchell's Index, he will doubtless meet with a complete concordance of passages containing a given Greek word or its inflexions. In Mr. Grote's great work, and in Dr. Whewell's paraphrases, he will likewise find all that is necessary to bring him into intimate acquaintance with the speculations and reasonings unfolded in our author. But these are all expensive works, and the two last would require to he read as a whole to extract from them what has been advanced on any single topic. No one, however, who wishes to do justice to the great philosopher of antiquity should stop short of studying Mr. Grote's most masterly analysis, the only drawback to which is, that the author belongs to the sensational school of Mill and Bain rather than to that of Plato, and is not wholly in sympathy with him.

In the present volume, which is a kind of Directory to Plato, the writer has avoided either attacking or defending the opinions contained in his dialogues, or setting them in a framework of his own. Even where he may unconsciously have given a turn to the reasoning which the original may be thought not to require, little harm will he done, as the reference to the numbered paragraph and letter will generally enable the student to correct or verify the rendering. It is not an Index of words, hut rather of remarkable or pregnant thoughts, particularly of such as bear on present modes of thinking, or anticipate at the dawn of philosophy the very controversies of our own time.
