Titel: Socratic Virtue. Making the Best of the ...
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge (.), 2006. XIV,204p. Hard bound with dust wrps. Spine gilt titled. Nice copy. 'In Socratic Virtue, Naomi Reshotko gives a careful and systematic account of these Socratic claims that is intended 'both as an interpretation of Socrates' views and as a viable philosophy of motivation and goodness in human action' (p. xi). As the title indicates, Reshotko's interpretive focal point is the notion of the neither-good-nor-bad found in key passages of the Gorgias, Euthydemus, Meno, and Lysis. Anyone writing about the philosophy of Socrates must reckon with the Socratic problem. In the introduction Reshotko briefly appeals to stylometric considerations and to the testimony of Aristotle to support her suspicion that the views she presents 'did originate with the historical Socrates' (p. 11). The introduction also makes it clear that Reshotko will be trying to extract or reconstruct a positive philosophy from a particular group of dialogues that can in some useful sense be regarded as 'Socratic'. (.) Those who work on Socrates are engaged in an exciting and never-ending discussion about how best to articulate his ideas and arguments. In Socratic Virtue Naomi Reshotko clearly and forcefully presents a case for an intriguing and powerful interpretation and thus makes a valuable contribution to that ongoing conversation.'

Inhaltsangabe: Socrates was not a moral philosopher. Instead he was a theorist who showed how human desire and human knowledge complement one another in the pursuit of human happiness. His theory allowed him to demonstrate that actions and objects have no value other than that which they derive from their employment by individuals who, inevitably, desire their own happiness and have the knowledge to use actions and objects as a means for its attainment. The result is a naturalised, practical, and demystified account of good and bad, and right and wrong. Professor Reshotko presents a freshly envisioned Socratic theory residing at the intersection of the philosophy of mind and ethics. It makes an important contribution to the study of the Platonic dialogues and will also interest all scholars of ethics and moral psychology.
