Some brief overview of this book

This volume brings together Seth Benardetes studies of Hesiods Theogony, Homers Iliad, and Greek tragedy, of eleven Platonic dialogues, and Aristotles Metaphysics. These essays, some never before published, others difficult to find, span four decades of his work and document its impressive range. Benardetes philosophic reading of the poets and his poetic reading of the philosophers share a common ground that makes this collection a whole. The key, suggested by his reflections on Leo Strauss in the last piece, lies in the question of how to read Plato. Benardetes way is characterized not just by careful attention to the literary form that separates doctrine from dialogue, and speeches from deed; rather, by following the dynamic of these differences, he uncovers the argument that belongs to the dialogue as a whole. The turnaround such an argument undergoes bears consequences for understanding the dialogue as radical as the conversion of the philosopher in Platos image of the cave.

Benardetes original interpretations are the fruits of this discovery of the argument of the action.
