Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Headmaster of King Edward's School in Birmingham for fourteen years, Edwin Hamilton Gifford (1820 1905) also held a number of ecclesiastical posts, including select preacher at both Cambridge and Oxford. Better known for his biblical and patristic scholarship, he also prepared this edition of the Euthydemus, Plato's most comical dialogue. Thought to be an early work, depicting a discussion between Socrates and two sophists trained in eristic (argument for the sake of conflict), it is among the earliest-known treatises on logic, satirising various fallacies that were subsequently categorised by Aristotle. Published in 1905, a generation after Jowett's standard translation, this edition was intended for university and advanced school students. A thorough introduction is given in English, followed by the Greek text, extensive notes, and indexes of vocabulary and names. As such, this reissue illuminates the educational preoccupations of both early twentieth-century England and classical Athens.
