Socratic Philosophy and Its Others (Reprint) (Paperback)
About this item
Engaging a broad range of Platonic dialogues, this collection of essays by distinguished scholars in political theory and philosophyexplores the relation of Socratic philosophizing to those activities with which it is typically opposed—such as tyranny, sophistry, poetry, and rhetoric. The essays show that the harder one tries to disentangle Socrates’ own activity from that of its apparent opposite, the more entangled they become; yet, it is only by taking this entanglement seriously that the distinctive character of Socratic philosophy emerges. The collection sheds new light on the ways in which Plato not only represents philosophy in relation to what it is not, but also makes it “strange” to itself.
