    A subtle and distinguished work by a philosopher renowned for his groundbreaking analysis of human emotions, About Love is an engaging study of the phenomenon of modern romantic love.

  3. Other Selves

    Edited, with Introduction, by Michael Pakaluk

    Other Selves

    "Friendship, that pervasive, everyday, and subtle matter of our most intimate personal life, has rarely been accorded its due. Michael Pakaluk has retrieved the thoughts of our greatest thinkers on the subject and collected them into a handsome and handy volume. . . . A splendid book!"
         — M. M. Wartofsky, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Baruch College, City University of New York

  4. Plato on Love

    Plato
    Edited, with Introduction, by C. D. C. Reeve

    Plato on Love

    This collection features Plato's writings on sex and love in the preeminent translations of Stanley Lombardo, Paul Woodruff and Alexander Nehamas, D. S. Hutchinson, and C. D. C. Reeve. Reeve's Introduction provides a wealth of historical information about Plato and Socrates, and the sexual norms of classical Athens. His introductory essay looks closely at the dialogues themselves and includes the following sections: Socrates and the Art of Love; Socrates and Athenian Paiderastia; Loving Socrates; Love and the Ascent to the Beautiful; The Art and Psychology of Love Explained; and Writing about Love.

  5. Socrates & Alcibiades: Four Texts

    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by David M. Johnson

    Socrates & Alcibiades: Four Texts

    Socrates and Alcibiades: Four Texts gathers together translations our four most important sources for the relationship between Socrates and the most controversial man of his day, the gifted and scandalous Alcibiades. In addition to Alcibiades’ famous speech from Plato’s Symposium, this text includes two dialogues, the Alcibiades I and Alcibiades II, attributed to Plato in antiquity but unjustly neglected today, and the complete fragments of the dialogue Alcibiades by Plato’s contemporary, Aeschines of Sphettus. These works are essential reading for anyone interested in Socrates’ improbable love affair with Athens’ most desirable youth, his attempt to woo Alcibiades from his ultimately disastrous worldly ambitions to the philosophical life, and the reasons for Socrates’ failure, which played a large role in his conviction by an Athenian court on charges of impiety and corrupting the youth.

  6. Symposium (Woodruff & Nehamas Edition)

    Plato
    Translated by Paul Woodruff and Alexander Nehamas

    Symposium (Woodruff & Nehamas Edition)

    "A model of the kind of text one needs for lecture courses: the translation is extremely readable and made even more accessible by intelligent printing decisions (on dividing the text, spacing for clarification, etc.); the notes are kept to a minimum but appear when they are really needed for comprehension and are truly informative. And the introduction admirably presents both basic information and a sense of current scholarly opinion."
         —S. G. Nugent, Princeton University
