Review

«As Thomas L. Dynneson’s pioneering research has demonstrated, we simply cannot understand the politics of any age without recognizing how each society uses laws, education, and social norms to promote a particular vision of civism. Dynneson continues his unparalleled work in civism by turning to ancient Athens as the source for state-sponsored education whose purpose is to cultivate people into citizen-subjects. Dynneson provides a rich account of the various intellectual and political forces, including those we now call sophistic and philosophical, that create a vision of how laws, tradition, and pedagogy function to produce the ideal citizen. This book will be of interest to any reader with a serious interest in civism, which ought to be all of us.» (Edward Schiappa, Paul W. Frenzel Chair of Liberal Arts, The University of Minnesota)
