Examining the theories and arguments put forward by Plato in his Phaedo, in which he attempts to show that the soul is immortal, Bostock's introduction to Plato's often difficult arguments discusses such important philosophical problems as the nature of the mind, the idea of personal identity, the question of how we understand language, and the concept of cause, reason, and explanation.
