This collection of Eva Brann’s is one of the most valuable aids a lover of Plato could have.” Walter Nicgorski, University of Notre Dame

In fourteen essays, Eva Brann talks with readers about the conversations Socrates engages in with his fellow Athenians. In doing so, she shows how Plato’s dialogues and the timeless matters they address remain important to us today.

The Music of the Republic will establish [Eva Brann] as one of the great readers and interpreters of the Platonic dialogues in modern times.” Bruce Foltz, Eckerd College

It is a wonder and a delight to be led by Eva Brann through the Socratic conversations Those who do not know the Republic will be initiated into its treasures. Those who believe that it is a great book will understand better what they already know. And all who teach the dialogues will find their souls expanded in the presence of this most generous teacher.” Ann Hartle, Emory University

In these wonderfully insightful essays, Eva Brann helps us hear the music of Plato’s dialogues and join the conversation I found myself filled with envy for her students and happy, with this book, to now be included among them.” Anthony T. Kronman, Yale University

"The title essay of this collection is a miniature masterpiece, one of the most seminal writings of our time on Plato's Republic." John Sallis, Pennsylvania State University

Eva Brann is a member of the senior faculty at St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland, where she has taught for over fifty years. She is a recipient of the National Humanities Medal. Her other books include The Logos of Heraclitus, Feeling Our Feelings, Homage to Americans, Open Secrets / Inward Prospects, Un-Willing, Then and Now, and Homeric Moments (all published by Paul Dry Books).

Book Description Paul Dry Books. Paperback. Condition: New. 378 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.3in. x 1.0in.It is a wonder and a delight to be led by Eva Brann through the Socratic conversations. She begins from first impressions and moves through perplexity to clarity, without losing the thread. Those who do not know the Republic, will be initiated into its treasures. Those who believe that it is a great book will understand better what they already know. And all who teach the dialogues will find their souls expanded in the presence of this most generous teacher. Ann Hartle, Emory UniversityIn this collection of essays, Eva Brann talks with readers about the conversations Socrates has with his fellow Athenians. She shows how Platos dialogues and the timeless matters they address remain important to us today. From introductory pieces on the Republic, the Phaedo, and the Sophist to an account of the less well known Charmides, each essay starts where Plato starts, without presupposing a critical theory. In the title essays brilliant account of the Republic, Brann demonstrates its central importance in Platos work. Other essays consider Platos notion of time, discuss how to teach Plato to undergraduates and contend that a thoughtful text-based study of Plato can have a very personal impact on a reader. Encouraged to befriend the dialogues, readers will join in the great Socratic conversations. Eva Brann is a member of the senior faculty at St. Johns College in Annapolis, Maryland, where she has taught for more than fifty years. This item ships from multiple locations.
