about

In this award-winning study of the Phaedrus, Charles Griswold focuses on the theme of "self-knowledge." Relying on the principle that form and content are equally important to the dialogue's meaning, Griswold shows how the concept of self-knowledge unifies the profusion of issues set forth by Plato. Included are a new preface and an updated comprehensive bibliography of works on the Phaedrus.

“This is the most thorough and imaginative study of Plato’s Phaedrus that I have seen. It is unusually stimulating and will be valuable to classicists, philosophers, and specialists in comparative literature.”
