    1. هناك فيلسوف من الأفلاطونية المحدثة اسمه اوليمبيدروس يروي أن أفلاطون حلم ذات يوم أنه أصبح بجعة أخذت تطير من شجرة إلى شجرة محاولاً الفرار من أسهم الصيادين. وكان اليونانيون يأخذون أحلامهم مأخذ الجد تمامًا، وقد فسر اوليمبيدروس هذا الحلم على أنه يعني أن أفلاطون الحقيقي سيظل يفل [...]

    2. Ultimately, it served as a well-written and light (yet useful) introduction to the massively influential Plato. It may have gotten a higher rating had I been a bigger fan of the art style. As it is, I liked it and was glad that pictures were included, and my main issue was the unnecessary inclusion of a couple modern people in the scenes. They really only served to bring me out of the narrative as a kind of eyesore (though I can see why they may have been included). In all, I'm glad I bought thi [...]

    3. It's going by dialectical way among Plato and newer philosophies. It good one except something that annoy me which is the author of this book is fearing of dictatorship too much. It's a problem because when you thinking like that you can't think out of liberal democracy any more.

    4. Pretty good intro. I think the illustrator was so unimaginative that she drew herself over and over in the book, which was out of place and annoying.

    5. I’ve been reading Plato’s REPUBLIC slowly. After finishing one book I’ve gone back and read it again, sometimes a third time, and that’s not enough. It’s deceptively simple, shadowed with irony and open, like everything, to interpretation. When a friend lent me INTRODUCING PLATO: A GRAPHIC GUIDE, I dug into it for perspective. It helps that the authors aren’t champions nor skeptics, but try their best to explain the quasi-religious ideas about reality debated (and often not) in the S [...]

    6. I love this series of books. When I worked in a bookstore I would often find myself off in a corner paging through something from this series. The book delivers exactly what it promises and is a good introduction to the massive output of Plato. A very interesting, highly entertaining, and occasionally funny graphic novel style book that made me want to know more about Plato. I think I will gradually collect everything in this series thus making me want to know more about all kinds of great stuff [...]

    7. If I had read this book about 5 years earlier, maybe I wouldn't have struggled with philosophy so much. And maybe I would have had a far better understanding of what my philosophy teacher was going on at great length about. Alas. Feels like an illustrated crash course in brain surgery if you don't have any prior knowledge about certain concepts. But it has pictures with giraffes called Raymond.

    8. Easy to read and gives brief descriptions of Plato's main ideologies. I liked the fact that the author praised as well as criticized some of Plato's views. The authors take on Plato's theory of knowledge and divine forms of it was of particular interest and made up most of the contents of the book.

    9. A philosophy class read, giving a rough overview of some of the history, ideas, and writings of the famous philosophers in a semi-comic book kind of way. It was a faster read than I expected which was also nice, and felt like a good crash-course into philosophy if that's what you are into.

    10. Ενδιαφέρον comic-εισαγωγικό εγχειρίδιο για την φιλοσοφία του Πλάτωνα. Για έναν που δεν έχει διαβάσει τίποτα για τον μεγάλο φιλόσοφο είναι ότι πρέπει. Έχει και μία καλή βιβλιογραφία στο τέλος για να εμβαθύνει κάποιος. Αν το βρείτε, πάρτε το και διαβάστε το.

    11. Fun, graphic guide to the works of Plato. Has some of the better explanations I have found on some of the concepts- would probably be good for philosophy newbies. I especially enjoyed the giraffe named Raymond.

    12. This was Katy's book. I was interested because I learned about Plato's Theory of Forms a few years ago, while editing one of Katy's university essays. The theory explains object-oriented programming. Anyway, the book was OK, an easy and quick read. Now I know.

    13. A fun and good little book to be introduced to Plato or reminded of his theories and thoughts. It was like a comic book and easy to digest. A good book for a boring afternoon.

    14. This is an excellent, funny and well written introduction to Plato that boils some fairly complex topics down to easily chewable bites.

    15. This is a fairly good introduction to Plato. The thing that bothers me the most is that there is as much criticism of Plato as there are Plato's ideas and I didn't like that criticism.

    16. Although I've read a couple of his full books (in translation, of course), I found this an enjoyable survey of is brilliant ideas and his incredibly bad, destructive ideas.
