Industry Reviews

"It does not take long for the reader to see that the level of argument in this book is very high and that new ground has been broken in several areas...there is no doubt that someone who wishes to pursue the nature of Socratic religion in detail not only will have to read it but must chew and digest its many valuable insights. In sum, it is a worthwhile contribution to an important subject."--Journal of the American Academy of Religion "It does not take long for the reader to see that the level of argument in this book is very high and that new ground has been broken in several areas...there is no doubt that someone who wishes to pursue the nature of Socratic religion in detail not only will have to read it but must chew and digest its many valuable insights. In sum, it is a worthwhile contribution to an important subject."--Journal of the American Academy of Religion "This is a splendid book, prepared by two fine Plato scholars. It will be an invaluable resource to Platonists in both their research and their teaching. The articles are uniformly excellent and the Vlastos correspondence intriguing and informative."--Ellen Wagner, Asst. Professor of Philosophy, University of North Florida
