Phaedrus lures Socrates outside the walls of Athens, where he seldom goes, by promising to share a new work by his friend and mentor, Lysias, a famous writer of speeches. This dialogue provides a powerful example of the dialectical writing that Plato uses to manifest ideas that are essential to human existence and to living a good life. Phaedrus shows how oral and written forms of language relate to each other and to philosophy. It simultaneously embodies the entire process in some of the greatest poetry ever written.

Plato's probably mots poetical dialogue.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Super dialogue with an unforgettable vision of the soul.
What other book might you compare Plato's Phaedrus to and why?
The other two dialogues dedicated to love.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
I (mostly) enjoyed Ray Charles-he brings a wry humor/irony to the role. The one who payed Phaedrus was not credible.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Socrates' second speech.
