    The Socratic Narrative: A Democratic Reading of Plato’s Dialogues.Arlene W. Saxonhouse - 2009 - Political Theory 37 (6):728-753.
    Plato wrote dialogues. While there has been attention to the dramatic elements of Plato's dialogues by a number of scholars, there has been much less attention to the narrative style of the dialogues. I argue that we should consider whether the dialogues are recited or presented like dramatic works with each character speaking his own words—or as a mixture of these narrative forms. By employing this interpretive tool to read the Republic, I illustrate how paying attention to the narrative style (...)

    They do not understand that being brought apart is carried back together with itself; it is a back-stretching harmony as of the bow and the lyre. Herakleitus, Frag. 51 “Tell me, you, the heir of the argument,” I said, “what was it Simonides said about justice that you assert he said correctly?”“That it is just to give to each what is owed,” he said. “In saying this he said a fine thing, at least in my opinion.” Plato, Republic 331e.

    Another Antigone: The Emergence of the Female Political Actor in Euripides' "Phoenician Women".Arlene W. Saxonhouse - 2005 - Political Theory 33 (4):472-494.
    The Phoenician Women, Euripides' peculiar retelling and refashioning of the Theban myth, offers a portrait of Antigone before she becomes the actor we mostly know today from Sophocles' play. In this under-studied Greek tragedy, Euripides portrays the political and epistemological dissolution that allows for Antigone 's appearance in public. Whereas Sophocles' Antigone appears on stage ready to confront Creon with her appeal to the universal unwritten laws of the gods and later dissolves into the female lamenting a lost womanhood, Euripides' (...)

  15. Private and Public Corruption.Arlene W. Saxonhouse, J. Peter Euben, Paul Cantor, Shelley Burtt, Daniel Lowenstein, Adina Schwartz, John T. Noonan, He Qinglian, Michael Johnston & Frank Anechiarico (eds.) - 2004 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    The book roots corruption in the idea of a departure from conventional standards, and thus offers an account not only of its corrosiveness but also of its malleability and controversiality. In the course of a broadranging exploration, it examines various links between private and public corruption, connecting the latter with other social and political structures.

  17. Three Discourses: A Critical Modern Edition of Newly Identified Work of the Young Hobbes.Noel B. Reynolds & Arlene W. Saxonhouse (eds.) - 1995 - University of Chicago Press.
    For the first time in three centuries, this book brings back into print three discourses now confirmed to have been written by the young Thomas Hobbes. Their contents may well lead to a resolution of the long-standing controversy surrounding Hobbes's early influences and the subsequent development of his thought. The volume begins with the recent history of the discourses, first published as part of the anonymous seventeenth-century work, _Horae Subsecivae_. Drawing upon both internal evidence and external confirmation afforded by new (...)

    Nation and Responsibility: The King and His Soldiers in Shakespeare’s Henry V.Arlene W. Saxonhouse - 2021 - Political Theory 49 (6):968-994.
    Who bears responsibility for the actions of a city or state? Is it the entity that we sometimes call a nation? Or the individual members of the nation? Shakespeare’s Henry V includes a brief interchange the night before the battle at Agincourt that addresses this question. A disguised king and the common soldiers of his army debate who is responsible for the deaths that will occur during the forthcoming battle if the war they are fighting is unjust: the king or (...)

    Who Speaks.Arlene W. Saxonhouse - 2019 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 23 (2):287-303.
    I consider Sophocles’s tragedy the Ajax against the backdrop of Pericles’s invocation of silence about and from women, Pericles’s citizenship law of 451BCE and Aristotle’s understanding of the human being as a political animal possessing logos. I argue that in the actions and speeches of the play there is a questioning of the exclusion of women and bastards from political deliberation. A study of the language of the play reveals that Tecmessa, Ajax’s concubine, and Teucer, his bastard half-brother, exercise logos (...)
