"A lucid and engaging account of the philosophy of Socrates. ... The experience of this book will be joyous for many readers, as it was for me. Rudebusch's advocacy of Socrates as a thinker who has much to tell us about the good human life is carried off with passion and grace, as well as an enviable succinctness and clarity. It is a treatment that I expect will succeed, deservedly, in winning over new advocates." (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, April 2010)"A remarkable book. A treatment of Socrates that is both original in its approach and lovingly crafted to make Socrates accessible to a contemporary audience."
-- Debra Nails, Michigan State University
"A stimulating, eloquent, and highly original work of scholarship that breaks new ground in the search for an understanding of this most puzzling and elusive of philosophers. It is no mean feat that Rudebusch has written a book that is both accessible to beginners in philosophy and required reading for scholars of ancient philosophy."
Mark L. McPherran, Simon Fraser University
