The Dialogues of Plato rank with the writings of Aristotle as the most important and influential philosophical works in Western thought. In them Plato cast his teacher Socrates as the central disputant in colloquies that brilliantly probe a vast spectrum of philosophical ideas and issues.

Not Complete Dialogues

My Plato's Dialogues is 1500 pages. The intro on the audio says that this is only 150 pages. Perhaps it's "unabridged" but it is also "selected" and the summary should say so.
