Description
When the winds fall, the sailor picks up his oars, no longer relying on help outside his own power. This 'second sailing, ' according to the distinguished classicist Seth Benardete, is the essence of Socratic philosophizing. In this section-by-section commentary, Benardete argues that Plato's Republic is itself a self-powered analysis of the beautiful, the good, and the just. Socrates' Second Sailing provides at once a fresh interpretation of the Republic and a new understanding of philosophy as practiced by Plato and Socrates.
