Editorial Reviews

Religious Studies Review
. . . will be of interest to Plato scholars and useful for graduate seminars on Plato.
Greece and Rome
Plato's Dialogues is one of the more useful contributions to the discussion . . . the gem of the collection was Rosemary Kent Sprague's pungent characterization of Platonic studies in the sixties . . . British scholars particularly will benefit by reading what she has to say.
. . . should generate some interesting arguments in the next few years.
Walter Watson
. . . bears witness to a major new development in Plato studies . . . yields a rich harvest of new insights into Plato's thought.
Charles Griswold
. . . a fine contribution to the ongoing effort to understand what it means to interpret a Platonic dialogue.
. . . should generate some interesting arguments in the next few years.
