"From the acclaimed writer and thinker--whose award-winning books include both fiction and non-fiction--a dazzlingly original plunge into the drama of philosophy, revealing its hidden but essential role in today's debates on love, religion, politics, and science. Imagine that Plato came to life in the 21st century and set out on a multi-city speaking tour: How would he handle a host on Fox News who challenges him on religion and morality? How would he mediate a debate on the best way to raise a child between a Freudian psychoanalyst and a Tiger Mom? How would he answer a neuroscientist who, about to scan Plato's brain, argues that all his philosophical problems can be solved by our new technologies? What would he make of Google, and the idea that knowledge can be crowdsourced rather than reasoned out by experts? With a philosopher's depth and a novelist's imagination, Rebecca Newberger Goldstein probes the deepest issues confronting us--from sexuality and child-rearing to morality and the meaning of life--by allowing us to eavesdrop on Plato as he encounters the modern world. By reviving the Platonic art of the dialogue for the 21st century, she demonstrates that the questions he first posed continue to confound and enlarge us"--… (mer)

It's been some time since I read this, and I don't recall any details. ( )

I think you could learn a lot of philosophy from this, but if you're going to write a dialogue, I think you should punctuate it so that I can tell who is speaking. ( )

Learned a lot about Plato and his times. Not sure I liked the format of the book, chapters featuring a modern-day Plato in the present (on a book tour) alternating with chapters about Plato and his environment and his writings. But I guess the mixture was better than if the book had been only one or the other. ( )

Excellent book about how and why Plato, the founder of philosophy, is relevant in the 21st century. ( )

It rehabilitates one's faith in contemporary civilization that a sophisticated and intelligent book like this on Plato's philosophy can be found on the shelves of Barnes & Noble in a rural shopping mall. ( )
