Finitude and Transcendence in the Platonic Dialogues
Finitude and Transcendence in the Platonic Dialogues (August 1995)
Drew A. Hyland - Author

This book explains how to read Plato, emphasizing the philosophic importance of the dramatic aspects of the dialogues, and showing that Plato is an ironic thinker and that his irony is deeply rooted in his philosophy.

The Symposium and the Phaedrus
The Symposium and the Phaedrus (July 1993)
Plato's Erotic Dialogues
Plato - Author
William S. Cobb - Translation and introduction by

Death and the Disinterested Spectator
Death and the Disinterested Spectator (October 1986)
An Inquiry into the Nature of Philosophy
Ann Hartle - Author

"This book is a serious attempt to grapple with an absolutely fundamental question: the nature of philosophy in its relation to theory, practice, and death. The method for dealing with this question is also interesting: to discuss the larger question concretely by examining a philosophical dialogue, a theological and philosophical confession, and a philosophical treatise." -- Carl G. Vaught
