9781587319655: Xenophon's Socrates

Relying exclusively on the texts, Professor Strauss analyzes and compares every seemingly casual utterance as well as the more formal statements to recover the true Socrates and to determine the character of political philosophy. He investigates its origins, possibilities, and intention against the nonphilosophical background from which it emerged.

About the Author:

Christopher Bruell is professor of political science at Boston College and author of On the Socratic Education: An Introduction to the Shorter Platonic Dialogues and a number of articles on classical political philosophy, including the chapter on Xenophon in the Strauss-Cropsey History of Political Philosophy and a long study of Strauss's book on the Oeconomicus, "Strauss on Xenophon's Socrates," which appeared in The Political Science Reviewer (1984).

Review:

[The] final and most difficult volume of Strauss’ trilogy. Only Strauss could unravel its apparently simple but actually labyrinthic arguments. -- Harry Newmann, Journal of the History of Philosophy
