MEDIA REVIEWS
"Those willing to have their study of Socrates stretched beyond the typical boundaries of philosophical and classical scholarship may regard this volume as something of a treasure." (Philosophy In Review) "Everyone interested in Socrates and his legacy will find something valuable in this book..." (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews) "Technical issues are treated thoroughly and comprehensibly and the state of knowledge on Socrates is comprehensively presented both for today and its historical contexts. Its subject matter will be of interest to non-specialists with a penchant for philosophy, or for the history of thoght, since there is as much of interest here about the influence of Socrates on later periods as there is on the thought of the philosopher himself." (Reference Reviews)
