From the Publisher"Written by first rate scholars, including some of his former students, on topics pioneered by Gerasimos Santas, each chapter exhibits the powerful influence of his work, and how vividly inspiring it remains in the lively debates about the Socratic paradoxes, desire and love in Plato, and the status of the good in Plato and Aristotle. This is an outstanding volume perfectly commensurate with Santas' achievementsand spirit."
Professor Pierre Destrée, Université Catholique de Louvain
"This is a fine collection of papers focused on topics central to the works of Gerasimos Santas. Of the more than 20 contributions, roughly one third are devoted to Socratic method and moral theory. The largest bloc of papers examine Plato’s philosophy, including numerous excellent works on issues in the Republic ranging from the drama of the dialogue to the nature of Form of the Good and our desire for and knowledge of it. There are also a handful of papers on Aristotle to which readers will want to pay attention. For over forty years the work of Santas has cast light on some of the hardest problems in Ancient Philosophy. His influence can be felt throughout this fitting tribute."
Professor Allan Silverman, Ohio State University
