Enthusiastically recommended for students of philosophy

In Plato's Progeny: How Plato And Socrates Still Captivate The Modern Mind, Melissa Lane (University Lecturer in History at Cambridge and a Fellow of King's College, Cambridge) begins with an account of modern responses to the trial of Socrates and the controversial question of Socrates' relation to Plato. She explores the idea of Platonic origins in and for philosophy, as well as the Platonic foundations for philosophical politics. Plato's Progeny also explores the invocations of Plato as Lane persuasively argues that twentieth-century ideological battles have obscured the importance of Socratic individualism, the nature of Platonic ethics, and the value of Platonic politics for a contemporary society. Enthusiastically recommended for students of philosophy in general, and the contributions of Socrates and Plato in particular, Plato's Progeny is an ideal and exceptionally well written introduction and commentary.
