What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Daniel: “English philosopher Alfred North Whitehead said, “All of Western thought us nothing more than a series of footnotes to Plato”. Plato’s mentor, Socrates is a main player in this work and leads us up to the his death by the citizens of Athens due to the challenging questions about people’s actions and beliefs he asks. Plato challenges the reader to think about what is the best life and this book is a given in any philosophy course.”
