The philosophy of Socrates by Thomas C Brickhouse( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text provides an introduction to Socrates - both the charismatic, controversial historical figure and the essential Socratic philosophy. Written at a beginner level but incorporating recent scholarship, The Philosophy of Socrates offers numerous translations of pertinent passages. As they present these passages, Thomas C. Brickhouse and Nicholas D. Smith demonstrate why these passages are problematic, survey the interpretive and philosophical options, and conclude with brief defenses of their own proposed solutions. Throughout, the authors rely on standard translations to parallel accompanying assigned primary source readers. Each chapter concludes with an annotated bibliography of suggested readings."--BOOK JACKET
