'Plato's exceptional city, love, and philosopher'

David Riesbeck reviews this book by Nickolas Pappas at the Bryn Mawr Classical Review.

"In this provocative, challenging, and eccentric book, Nickolas Pappas considers the ideal city of the Republic and two more embodied ideals that he calls 'exceptions,' the philosophical lovers of the Symposium and the Phaedrus and the true philosopher of the Theaetetus, Sophist, Statesman, and, somewhat surprisingly, the Ion."

See Plato, Dialogues, and The Seventh Letter, in Great Books of the Western World (first edition, 52 Vol., 1952) volume 7, (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volume 6.
