Product Description


This book is exceptionally important and useful. It combines three things usually found separately (if at all): sensitivity to the dialogues as integrities of drama and argument; a clear philosophical understanding of the issues relating to human freedom; and a thorough appreciation of the complexity and subtlety of Socrates as an educator. The discussions work together thematically, and are also interesting just as interpretations of the three dialogues. The book is an exceptionally important and useful work. W. Thomas Schmid, author of Plato s Charmides and the Socratic Ideal of Rationality"
