The Laws is Plato's last and longest dialogue. The question asked at the beginning is not What is law? as one would expect- that is the question of the Minos. The first question is rather, Who is given the credit for laying down your laws? It is generally agreed that Plato wrote this dialogue as an older man, having failed in his effort in Syracuse on the island of Sicily to guide a tyrant's rule, instead having been thrown in prison. These events are alluded to in the Seventh Letter. - Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
