Essay Review of Eva Brann, The Music of the Republic [Book Review]

International Journal of the Classical Tradition 13 (4):628-633 (2007)
  Copy   BIBTEX


The essays in this collection, though ranging in their keys from the teacherly to the scholarly, are united by their search for the deepest questions Plato gives us. The title essay on the Republic is a paradigm case, exploring with a mix of speculative daring and Socratic pleasure in aporia the ring structure of the dialogue, the emergent perspective of a "knowing soul," dianoetic eikasia, and the implicit presence of the One and the Dyad in the metaphysical figures of the central books. See also, especially, the two essays on the Phaedo's legacy of questions and the Minotaurs that threaten it.
