Virtue in the Cave by Roslyn Weiss

Book Description

This book is radically new interpretation of Plato's Meno. Roslyn Weiss takes and defends the position that the Meno is a self-conscious analysis and assessment of the worth not of inquiry itself, but of moral inquiry. Her coherent reading of the Meno identifies serious problems for orthodox interpretations and will appeal to anyone interested in ancient philosophy and the classics.

Socratic Paradox and Its Enemies by Roslyn Weiss Socratic Paradox and Its Enemies, Paperback (September 2008)

Argues that the Socratic paradoxes are best understood as Socrates' way of combating sophistic views: that no one is willingly just, those who are just and temperate are ignorant fools, and only some virtues (courage and wisdom) but not others (justice, temperance, and piety) are marks of true excellence.

Socrates Dissatisfied by Roslyn Weiss Socrates Dissatisfied, Hardback (December 1997)

Contending that Plato's "Crito" does not show an allegiance between Socrates and the state that condemned him, Weiss argues that he considers the laws of the state to be more concerned with creating deference than justice - that, by submitting to his judgement, Socrates acts from a personal sense of justice rather than a set of imposed rules.
