"Being and Logos" is . . . a philosophical adventure of rare inspiration. . . . Its power to illuminate the text . . . , its ecumenicity of inspiration, its methodological rigor, its originality, and its philosophical profundity—all together make it one of the few philosophical interpretations that the philosopher will want to re-read along with the dialogues themselves. A superadded gift is the author's prose, which is a model of lucidity and grace."
—International Philosophical Quarterly

"Being and Logos is highly recommended for those who wish to learn how a thoughtful scholar approaches Platonic dialogues as well as for those who wish to consider a serious discussion of some basic themes in the dialogues."
—The Academic Reviewer
