(PD) Another Dialoguist

I made the following addition to the list of philosophical dialoguists on the syllabus (which is now on canvas, incidentally):

Vyasa – Indian sage (circa 4th – 2nd century b.c.e.) credited with composing the epic poem Mahabharata, and hence the Bhagavad-Gita which it contains. The Gita is a dialogue between Sri Krishna and the warrior-prince Arjuna, embedded in an outer dialogue recounting the conversation. There is unconfirmed speculation that this choice of form may have been influenced by knowledge of some of Plato’s work
