This text (similar to edition 1) contains author's opposition to Heidegger's interpretation of the Platonic concept of truth. Recent extensive analysis of the meaning of aletheia in the older literature has more clearly brought out the various early meanings of the concept as explained in this text

The last of the "dialogues" by the Greek philosopher and mathematician Plato, this meditation on the nature of culture contains much that sounds outmoded to modern ears---such as discussions on slavery and the proper place of women---yet it remains an insightful examination of questions that continue to trouble us today... -- Publisher

PLATO, the great philosopher of Athens, son of Ariston, was born in 427 B.C. In early manhood admirer of Socrates, he later founded the famous school of philosophy in the grove Academus. Much else recorded of his life is uncertain; that he left Athens for a time after Socrates' execution is probable; that later he went to Cyrene, Egypt, and Sicily is possible; that he was wealthy is likely; that he was critical of 'advanced' democracy is obvious. He lived to be 80 years old. Linguistic tests including those of computer science still try to establish the order of his extant philosophical dialogues, written in splendid prose and revealing Socrates' mind fused with Plato's thought. In Laches, Charmides, and Lysis, Socrates and others discuss separate ethical conceptions. Protagoras, Io, and Meno discuss whether righteousness can be taught. In Gorias, Socrates is estranged from his city's thought, and his fate is impending. The Apology (not a dialogue), Crito, Euthyphro, and the unforgettable Phaedo relate to the trial and death of Socrates and propound the immortality of the soul. In the famous Symposium and Phaedrus, written when Socrates was still alive, we find the origin and meaning of love. Cratylus discusses the nature of language and the great masterpiece in 10 books, the Republic, concerns righteousness (and involves education, equality of the sexes, socialism, communism, and even abolition of slavery). Of the 6 so called 'dialectical" dialogues Euthydemus deals with philosophy; meta-physical Parmenides about general concepts and absolute being; Theaetetus reasons about the theory of knowledge; of its sequels, Sophist deals with not-being; Politicus with good and bad statesmanship and governments; Philebus with what is good. The Timaeus seeks the origin of the visible universe out of abstract geometrical elements. The unfinished Critias treats of lost Atlantis. Unfinished also is Plato's last work of the 12 books Laws (Socrates is absent from it), a critical discussion of principles of law which Plato thought the Greeks might accept. Of a dozen other extant dialogues and also some letters a few may be genuine. Six other extant dialogues have been rejected as spurious since ancient times

Against the physicists by Sextus ( Book )
19 editions published between 1936 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sextus Empiricus' Against the Physicists examines numerous topics central to ancient Greek inquiries into the nature of the physical world, covering subjects such as god, cause and effect, whole and part, body, place, motion, time, number, coming into being and perishing and is the most extensive surviving treatment of these topics by an ancient Greek sceptic. Sextus scrutinizes the theories of non-sceptical thinkers and generates suspension of judgement through the assembly of equally powerful opposing arguments. Richard Bett's edition provides crucial background information about the text and elucidation of difficult passages. His accurate and readable translation is supported by substantial interpretative aids, including a glossary and a list of parallel passages relating Against the Physicists to other works of Sextus. This is an indispensable edition for advanced students and scholars studying this important work by an influential philosopher"--
Against the professors by Sextus ( Book )
14 editions published between 1949 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Against the logicians by Sextus ( Book )
14 editions published between 1935 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sextus Empiricus' Against the Logicians is by far the most detailed surviving examination by any ancient Greek skeptic of the areas of epistemology and logic. It critically examines the pretensions of non-skeptical philosophers to have discovered methods for determining the truth, either through direct observation or by inference from the observed to the unobserved. It is therefore a fine example of the Pyrrhonist skeptical method at work. It also provides a mine of information about the ideas of other Greek thinkers, ideas that are in many cases poorly preserved in other sources. This volume presents Against the Logicians in a new and accurate translation, together with a detailed introduction that sets the work in its philosophical context."--Jacket
