Recensioner i media

Clifford Cunningham, Sun News Miami [A] richly complex book... This collection of essays should be read by anyone interested not just in ancient philosophy, but by graduate students in other fields to show them how to think critically and, if necessary, upset the proverbial apple cart.

Malcolm Schofield, Mind This is a book from which anyone tempted to pick up their Plato and wrestle with him will greatly profit.
