Xenophon’s Socrates by Leo Strauss

Strauss, L. Xenophon's Socrates. St. Augustine Press. 2004 [1972].

Publisher’s Review: “Relying exclusively on the texts, Professor Strauss analyzes and compares every seemingly casual utterance as well as the more formal statements to recover the true Socrates and to determine the character of political philosophy. He investigates its origins, possibilities, and intention against the nonphilosophical background from which it emerged.”
