Format: Paperback
Throughout many fields, many issues, and across many borders dialogue has been listed a panacea to current problems. Nonetheless, dialogue is not a simple exchange of speeches.
In this scholarly, yet practical book. Professor Gonzalez clarifies the use of Dialectic in several key books by Plato. (Laches, Charmides, Cratylus, Euthydemus, Meno, Phaedo, Republic and the Seventh Letter.) This is not a book one can skim through and learn a quick technique. Rather it is only read slowly and haltingly. To understand we must think of our own use of dialectic and dialogue, reread the dialogues of Plato, and then back to his book again.
It is my, perhaps, forlorn, hope that some educators will read this book.
