Titel: A Friendly Companion to Plato's Gorgias.
Southern Illinois University Press, Carbondale / Edwardsville, 1988. XLX,415p. Original dark blue gilt titled cloth. Nice copy. ?Plochmann?s and Robinson?s ?A Friendly Companion to Plato?s Gorgias? has much to recumbent itself and should be read by any serious student of Plato?s philosophy. At the same time, the book?s limitations are every bit as noteworthy as its strength. (?) Two aspects of ?A Friendly Companion? deserve special mention. First, their bibliography shows unusual disciplinary breadth for a book by philosophers. Rhetoric scholars may be encouraged to see the use of essays published in ?Quartely Journal of Speech?, ?Western Speech?, and ?Southern Speech Communication Journal? There are some surprising gaps (?), but generally speaking, Plochmann?s and Robinson?s bibliography will be very useful for readers interested in the scholarly literature on Plato?s ?Gorgias? Second, Plochmann and Robinson make prolific use of chapter outlines, tables, and diagrams. In all, twenty-seven figures are included in the text which help the reader to understand clearly how key concepts can be compared and contrasted. ?A Friendly Companion? is valuable as a modern Platonist reading of the ?Gorgias? It is a book with which to revel in the Platonist vision of rhetoric, politics, and philosophy.? (EDWARD SCHIAPPA in the Rhetoric Society Quarterly, 1990, p.187). Antiquarian.

A comprehensive study of “one of the most elusive and subtle? of all the Platonic dialogues.
The Gorgias begins with a discussion of the nature and value of rhetoric and develops into an impassioned argument for the primacy of absolute right (as expressed by conscience) in the regulation of both public and private life. Plochmann and Robinson closely analyze this great dialogue in the first two-thirds of their book, turning in the final four chapters to a broader discussion of its unity, sweep, and philosophic implications.
