Alcibiades I, by Plato

by William C. Michael

Here we present the text of Plato’s dialogues Alcibiades I, or First Alcibiades, translated by Thomas Taylor.

In this dialogue, Alcibiades I, Socrates investigates the nature of man, and explains the meaning of the famous ancient command: “Know thyself.” Read the dialogue and be amazed at how accurately the ancient philosophers understood the nature of man — a creature composed of body and soul, made to the image and likeness of God.
