This is a comprehensive study of Socrates as a philosopher. In recent years there has been a marked increase in the attention given by scholars to problems in the Interpretation of Socrates' moral paradoxes and I n the assessment of the scope and aims of his method. But there has been no comprehensive study in English of his contributions to philosophical method and to ethics. This book aims to provide it. This study of Socrates' philosophy is not concerned with questions of biography. Nor does it set out to solve the so-called Socratic problem, although it does not ascribe any doctrine to Socrates without giving grounds for doing so. But even those with different convictions about what is genuinely Socratic and what is not will find in it perceptive and illuminating analysis of an important stage in the development of Western philosophical thought. 222pp. Index. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
