Alternating Current by Octavio Paz
"Alternating Current" by Octavio Paz
A scintillating thinker and a prescient voice on emerging world culture, Paz reveals himself here as “a man of electrical passions, paradoxical visions, alternating currents of thoughts, and feeling that runs hot but never cold. Learn more | See related books

Editorial Reviews

Review

“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)

Review

"A remarkably rich and imaginative collection. Socrates was a philosopher who became a cultural icon; this book, with its massive historical range and its great variety of scholarly approach, does unique justice to his complexity."
–G.R.F. Ferrari, University of California, Berkeley

"This is a stimulating collection that succeeds admirably in conveying the enormous range of responses that the ever puzzling Socrates has inspired through the ages, and continues to inspire. The essays on Plato's Socrates are fresh and vigorous, and the attention paid to later perspectives (from antiquity to the present, and especially recent centuries) helps make this volume a distinctive and unusually illuminating addition to Socratic studies. It should be a welcome companion to a figure who attracted devoted companions in his lifetime, and legions more ever since."
Stephen White, University of Texas at Austin

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It also helps a lot that the articles are relatively short so that they can be enjoyed without having to set aside large blocks of time. At the same time the diverse viewpoints make it easy to maintain concentration and interest level if several are read at a sitting.
