The Rhetoric of Morality and Philosophy: Plato's Gorgias and Phaedrus

University of Chicago Press (1991)

Abstract
Benardete here interprets and, for the first time, pairs two important Platonic dialogues, the Gorgias and the Phaedrus . In linking these dialogues, he places Socrates' notion of rhetoric in a new light and illuminates the way in which Plato gives morality and eros a place in the human soul.
