Description: Excerpt from Dialogues of Plato: Containing the Apology of Socrates, Crito, Phaedo, and Protagoras; With Introductions by the Translator, Benjamin Jowett

Although it seems difficult to formulate exactly the prin ciples of Socrates, and to discover their central point, the fact that Plato's system is set in one key makes it easier to analyze Platonism. The human soul is of the same spirit as the Su preme Being; it neither begins nor ends; the soul knew itself and still remembers some of its knowledge. The splendor of another world is re?ected upon it. Plato systematized previous theories; Aristotle followed his example. It was reserved for St. Thomas Aquinas to meet sophisms, with fuller knowledge than Socrates, and to make a summa of the best that had pre ceded him. The philosophical movement is not of one time it goes on, widening, classifying, perfecting itself from epoch to epoch.
