Editorial Reviews

Review

An extraordinarily fresh, rich, and thought-provoking introduction to Plato's political philosophy. Blitz takes a synoptic approach, combining in-depth textual analysis of particular dialogues with illuminating thematic discussions. The result is an extremely helpful, general-but-precise analysis of virtually all of the Platonic dialogues.

(Peter J. Ahrensdorf, Davidson College)

Readers of all levels can be grateful for this ambitious book, which is not limited to an account of Plato's political philosophy narrowly understood. Besides skillful chapters on Laws, Republic, and Statesman, Blitz provides accurate and instructive treatments of 11 other dialogues... Highly recommended.

(Choice)

[Blitz's] book is beautifully organized, and he succeeds in moving 'along Plato's spiraling paths.'

(Mary P. Nichols Claremont Review of Books)

Blitz's book... clearly contains the fruits of many years of thoughtful reflection on Plato's philosophy, and there is much that a discerning reader might learn from it.

(James Wood International Journal of the Classical Tradition)
