Description - A Companion to Socrates by Sara Ahbel-Rappe

This Companion explores the profound influence of Socrates on the history of Western philosophy and provides an in-depth discussion of the various approaches to his philosophy. Written by an outstanding international team of scholars, the volume covers the whole range of Socratic studies from the ancient world to the present day. The contributors review Socrates' life and key philosophical doctrines associated with him; they examine Socrates' place in the larger philosophical traditions of the Hellenistic world, the Roman Empire, the Arabic world, the Renaissance, and contemporary Europe; and they consider interdisciplinary subjects such as Socrates and Nietzsche, Socrates and psychoanalysis, and representations of Socrates in art. This distinctive Companion will help readers to understand the meaning and significance of Socrates across the ages.
