Un nuevo Platón emerge de las cuestiones que laten en este libro.

To make the case more concrete let us suppose that the Marxist attributes the origins of the war to commercial rivalry between Athens and Sparta, while the conservative in effect re­ plies "nonsense" and explains the outbreak in terms of a series of diplomatic maneuvers and countermaneuvers. Now as a purely practical matter we may agree at once that the task of reaching firm con­ clusions on even such questions as this one, where passions do not run very high, is extraordinarily difficult due to the inaccessibility of much of the relevant evidence and to natural human limita­ tions such as vanity and stubbornness.
