Product Description

Searching for a definition of good government, this commentary from Marsilio Ficino examines three Platonic dialogues that have had a profound effect on Western statesmen and jurists. A leading scholar of the Italian Renaissance—who translated all the works of Plato into Latin—Ficino prepared these notes for Lorenzo de’ Medici, ruler of the republic of Florence, who aspired to be the kind of enlightened ruler Plato described.
