Back cover copy

This collection testifies to the remarkable range of Stanley Rosen's learning and reflection in the history of philosophy, both ancient and modern. The publication of these essays, with all their speculative depth and richness, is truly a great philosophical benefit. It will throw new light on Rosen's thinking on many topics in metaphysics and political philosophy and on his readings of Plato, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Kojeve, Strauss, and other figures. - Richard Velkley, Tulane University

To say that Stanley Rosen is "one of kind" does not begin to do justice to his originality, or to the unique place in American letters that he has carved out for himself. His writing - erudite, witty and passionate - is also philosophically explosive and always alive with the cadence of energetic speech. This collection of his essays on ancient and modern philosophy is a valuable and often provocative selection of many of his most engaging essays. - Robert Pippin, University of Chicago
