"Miller reads the text as closely as any "Straussian," and more closely than many. He casts considerable light on virtually every aspect of the dialogue. Perhaps the most pervasive theme of Miller's study is that in the Statesman, Plato does two things: (1) he warns the younger members of the Academy against surrender to Pythagoreanism; (2) he provides training in the use of the universal method of diaeresis. All in all, this book is an outstanding contribution to our understanding of the Statesman. Stanley Rosen Borden Parker Bowne Professor of Philosophy, Boston University"
