M. J. Levett's elegant translation of Plato's Theaetetus, first published in 1928, is here revised by Myles Burnyeat to reflect contemporary standards of accuracy while retaining the style, imagery, and idiomatic speech for which the Levett translation is unparalleled. Bernard William’s concise introduction, aimed at undergraduate students, illuminates the powerful argument of this complex dialogue, and illustrates its connections to contemporary metaphysical and epistemological concerns.

Industry Reviews

"Burnyeat's Theaetetus is a remarkable book, destined to become a classic in its field. In the lucidity, penetration, and rigor of its analysis of the philosophical positions with which Plato experiments in this dialogue and in its power to connect these positions with present-day metaphysical and epistemological theories it has no superior. If I were using a Platonic dialogue to introduce students both to Plato's thought and to contemporary philosophical views with which it may be illuminatingly compared and contrasted, the availability of this book would persuade me to use the Theaetetus for that purpose. Burnyeat says that this Platonic text remains an exemplary model for us to emulate today. Agreeing, I would add that Burnyeat's treatment of it is an exemplary model for future writers of philosophical introductions to Plato." -- Gregory Vlastos.
