About the Book

The object of this volume is to furnish the reader with material
for estimating the characteristics and influence of Plato the
Mythologist, or Prophet, as distinguished from Plato the
Dialectician, or Reasoner.

In order to effect this special object within a reasonable
space, it was necessary to extract the Myths from the Dialogues
in which they occur, with only the shortest possible indication
of the Context in each case, and to confine the Observations
to the Myths as individual pieces and as a series. The reader,
therefore, must not expect to find in the Observations on, say,
the Phuedo Myth or the PhcLedrus Myth a Study of the Phaedo
or the Phaedrus.

The Greek text printed opposite the Translations and
followed by them throughout.
