Two more books I have read on Plato since I first wrote this review that I thought were excellent and definitely worth mentioning are: Plato and the Good: Illuminating the Darkling Vision (Philosophy of History and Culture) by Rosemary Desjardins.

The natural divisions are five in number;--(1) Book I and the first half of Book II down to the paragraph beginning, "I had always admired the genius of Glaucon and Adeimantus," which is introductory; the first book containing a refutation page 6 / Answer: There are only two Old Testament scriptures that directly reference this strange heavenly vision of a "wheel within a wheel" observed by the prophet Ezekiel.
