              The Republic deals with almost the whole range of Plato's thought, but is particularly concerned with what makes a well-balanced society and individual. It combines argument with myth to advocate a life organized by reason rather than dominated by leisures and appetites.

              This text presents Freud's theory that man is unable to tolerate too much reality, and that dreams are the contraband representations of the beast within man which are smuggled into awareness during sleep. The analysis of dreams is the key to unlocking the vital secrets of the un...conscious mind.

              By far the liveliest, most readable translation ever published of the Symposium --perhaps the liveliest, most readable translation of a Platonic dialogue ever printed. --John Patrick Lynch Much the best translation of the Symposium that I have ever read. In his ambition to avoid ...'translator's English' Griffith has been completely successful. Nor has he sacrificed accuracy, even where he sacrifices literalness. --G. R. F. Ferrari

              This work is a frank treatment of Rousseau's sexual and intellectual development. It offers a model for the reflective life: the solitary, uncompromising individual; the enemy of servitude and habit; and the selfish egoist who dedicates himself to a particular ideal.

              Anton Chekhov's popularity in the west is without parallel for a foreign writer. He has been absorbed into our culture, and accepted as one of our own. His plays lend themselves easily to the stage, calling for actors with intelligence and common sense rather than a dramatic voic...e or histrionic skills.
