Curious about the beginnings of philosophy? Have you ever wondered what the Greeks thought about and taught to Western Civilization? Knowledge Products presents a well-rounded synopsis of the writings of Plato and his teacher, Socrates. The excerpts show Plato's contribution to medieval and modern philosophy. Charlton Heston reads the background material, and an assorted cast reads excerpts from Plato and modern philosophers who wrote about him. Heston is an excellent narrator, reading clearly and slowly. The additional voices, however, vary in audibility. This is an excellent introduction to a complex subject. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG 95]
