Editorial Reviews

“The book is well and lucidly written, with plentifultables and diagrams and excerpts . . ..She will have to be a brightstudent, because some of Rudebusch’s arguments are quitesubtle; but I, for one, would have no hesitation in recommendingthe book to such a student.”  (The HeythropJournal, 4 September 2013)

"This relatively short volume serves as an excellent introductionto Socratic philosophy. Readers who are new to the enigmaticphilosopher will learn much about who he was, what his principaldoctrines were and why he held them. Remarkably comprehensive inits scope, it is throughout lucid, engaging and provocative. Butthis is also a book that will benefit even the most seasonedscholars regardless of how they view the author's basicinterpretative stance. [The author's] reconstructions of Socrates'arguments for his ‘wild ideas' are invariably rigorous,plausible, faithful to the text and well informed by currentscholarly debates. It is a rare book that so well serves suchdifferent readerships." (Thomas Brickhouse, The Classical Review,2011)

"A lucid and engaging account of the philosophy of Socrates. ...The experience of this book will be joyous for many readers, as itwas for me. Rudebusch's advocacy of Socrates as a thinker who hasmuch to tell us about the good human life is carried off withpassion and grace, as well as an enviable succinctness and clarity.It is a treatment that I expect will succeed, deservedly, inwinning over new advocates." (Notre Dame PhilosophicalReviews, April 2010)
