MEDIA REVIEWS
Timothy Chappell's Reading Plato's Theaetetus offers a translation of the Theaetetus , presented in small chunks of texts preceded by a summary and followed by in-depth analysis of the passages. The text would be an excellent companion to an upper level undergraduate course or graduate course on the Theaetetus , and is an invaluable resource for anyone working in this range of Plato's dialogues. . . . This translation is a major accomplishment in terms of style and accuracy, and it is a pleasure to read. . . . Timothy Chappell's Reading Plato's Theaetetus is a first-rate piece of scholarship that will be of great service to students of the dialogue for years to come. --G. S. Bowe, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
Those who come fresh to the Theaetetus will find plenty of help in Timothy Chappell's volume, which addresses the sorts of questions likely to be asked by an intelligent reader--especially one unfamiliar with Plato's manner of writing philosophy--and does its job in a fresh and stimulating way. --Christopher Rowe, University of Durham
