Item description

"In this book, W. Thomas Schmid demonstrates that the Charmides--a platonic dialogue seldom referenced in contemporary studies--is a microcosm of Socratic philosophy. Schmid argues that the depiction and account of sophrosune--human moderation--in the Charmides adumbrates Plato's vision of the life of critical reason, and of its uneasy relation to political life in the ancient city."
