Phaedrus by Plato

Phaedrus is chock full of info on how Plato applies logic to rhetoric. It is easier to understand RL Stone's argument that Plato and Socrates are basically fascists since reading Phaedrus. The translation seems very contemporary and the intro to each chapter were very helpful in getting through this read. I am enjoying more than I expected.
I will surely come back to this one and write more. I also want to dig out some of my favorite quotes.
