'This volume not only offers a coherent introduction to different aspects of Socrates for beginners in the field of study but also serves scholars who are experts in the field by discussing problems in major areas of Socratic research. Every essay is accessible, well informed, detailed, learned, and systematic in its presentation. The collection is a major achievement and will be an excellent tool for research. It will be read with profit by anyone who is interested in one of the most inspiring and influential figures of antiquity.' Michael Erler, University of Wurzburg 'This volume is as authoritative as it is diverse. Donald Morrison is to be congratulated for having assembled a stellar group of contributors from a variety of fields and of scholarly backgrounds, who between them do justice to the 'contested territory' that is Socrates - all within the convenient limits of a quite compact volume.' G. R. F. Ferrari, University of California, Berkeley 'Donald Morrison's volume brings together some of the best recent work on Socrates, representing a wide variety of approaches to this subject. It is a substantial contribution to Socratic studies and should prove to be an indispensable tool for further research.' Richard Kraut, Northwestern University 'This is a good book, and is more manageable in scope and half as expensive as the rival Blackwell Companion to Socrates. Donald Morrison deserves great credit for ably assembling an all-star team of contributors, and he includes a selective and well-organized bibliography and an index locorum.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review
