Fathers, Sons, and the Dorian Mode in the Laches

Dialogue 49 (02):245-266 (2010)
Abstract
ABSTRACT : This paper explores two interconnected themes that reoccur throughout the Laches: reworking the role of the father and the harmony of one’s words with their actions, the Dorian mode. These two themes, in addition to the discussion of courage, will turn out to be directly relevant to the nurturing of the souls of the sons. The question then arises whether any of the interlocutors present are adequate father figures who might be able to nurture the souls of the boys in a manner that is adequate. Judging by the conclusion of the dialogue, the only possible candidate is Socrates
