  John Burnet (classicist) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Burnet (December 9, 1863 – May 26, 1928) was a Scottish classicist, educated at the University of Edinburgh and Balliol College, Oxford, receiving his M.A. degree in 1887.
Burnet is best known for his work on Plato, particularly his argument that the depiction of Socrates in all of Plato's dialogues is historically accurate, and that the philosophical views peculiar to Plato himself are to be found only in the so-called late dialogues.
Burnet also maintained that Socrates was closely connected to the early Greek philosophical tradition, now generally known as Pre-Socratic philosophy; Burnet believed that Socrates had been in his youth the disciple of Archelaus, a member of the Anaxagorean tradition (Burnet 1924, vi).

Burnet, who is best known for his translation of Plato's works (the Platonis Opera Oxoniensis), was one of the greatest specialists in ancient philosophy and this can be seen by the accuracy of the information this book offers.
However, it is not one of those professional studies that bore the reader and don't manage to transmit any information.
