Abstract

Overview: "Once upon a time there were just the gods; mortal beings did not yet exist." We are used to thinking of myths containing lines like this simply as stories, and modern myths as made up and fictitious. For the ancient Greeks, however, a myth was unveiled reality, and for Plato, who was a myth-maker as well as a myth-teller, a myth could tell us something important about ourselves and our world. The ultimate purpose of Plato's myths is to help us live a better life, and to teach philosophical truths in a form we can most easily understand. This volume brings together ten of the most celebrated Platonic myths from eight of Plato's dialogues, ranging from the early Protagoras and Gorgias to the later Timaeus and Critias. The collection includes the famous myth of the cave from Republic as well as "The Judgement of Souls" and "The Birth of Love." Each myth is a self-contained story, prefaced by a short explanatory note. An introduction to the volume considers Plato's use of myth and imagery. These myths are both thought-provoking and profound, and together they provide an ideal introduction to Plato's philosophy.

Abstract

Annotation The Library provides in three books a grand summary of traditional Greek mythology and heroic legends. Written in clear and unaffected style, the compendium faithfully follows the Greek literary sources. It is thus an important record of Greek accounts of the origin and early history of the world and their race. This work has been attributed to Apollodorus of Athens (born c. 180 BCE), a student of Aristarchus. But the text as we have it was written by an author probably living in the first or second century of our era. In his highly valued notes to the Loeb Classical Library edition (which is in two volumes) J.G. Frazer cites the principal passages of other ancient writers where each particular story is told and compares the various versions to those in the Library.
