    The Religion of Socrates.Mark L. McPherran - 1996 - Pennsylvania State University Press.
    This study argues that to understand Socrates we must uncover and analyze his religious views, since his philosophical and religious views are part of one seamless whole. Mark McPherran provides a close analysis of the relevant Socratic texts, an analysis that yields a comprehensive and original account of Socrates' commitments to religion. McPherran finds that Socrates was not only a rational philosopher of the first rank, but a figure with a profoundly religious nature as well, believing in the existence of (...)

    Plato’s Republic: A Critical Guide.Mark L. Mcpherran, G. R. F. Ferrari, Rachel Barney, Julia Annas, Rachana Kamtekar & Nicholas D. Smith (eds.) - 2010 - Cambridge University Press.
    Plato's Republic has proven to be of astounding influence and importance. Justly celebrated as Plato's central text, it brings together all of his prior works, unifying them into a comprehensive vision that is at once theological, philosophical, political, and moral. These essays provide a a state-of-the-art research picture of the most interesting aspects of the Republic, and address questions that continue to puzzle and provoke, such as: Does Plato succeed in his argument that the life of justice is the most (...)

    The Religion of Socrates.Thomas C. Brickhouse & Mark L. McPherran - 1999 - Philosophical Review 108 (2):279.
    This book is without doubt the most meticulously researched, carefully argued, and comprehensive study of Socratic religion to date. When McPherran refers to the religion of Socrates, he means the religion of the historical Socrates. Like many contemporary scholars, McPherran thinks that Plato’s early dialogues are generally reliable sources for the views of the historical Socrates. With uncommon clarity, the author develops the philosophical and religious commitments of this Socrates and shows how they are really complementary parts of a single (...)

    Socratic Epagōgē and Socratic Induction.Mark L. McPherran - 2007 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 45 (3):347-364.
    Aristotle holds that it was Socrates who first made frequent, systematic use of epagôgç in his elenctic investigations of various definitions of the virtues . Plato and Xenophon also target epagôgç as an innovative, distinguishing mark of Socratic methodology when they have Socrates' interlocutors complain that Socrates prattles on far too much about "his favorite topic" —blacksmiths, cobblers, cooks, physicians, and other such tiresome craftspeople—in order to generate and test general principles concerning the alleged craft of virtue. It is remarkable, (...)

    The Cambridge Companion to Socrates is a collection of essays that provides a comprehensive guide to Socrates, the most famous Greek philosopher a comprehensive guide to Socrates, the most famous Greek philosopher. Because Socrates himself wrote nothing, our evidence comes from the writings of his friends , his enemies, and later writers. Socrates is thus a literary figure as well as a historical person. Both aspects of Socrates' legacy are covered in this volume.Socrates' character is full of paradox, and so (...)

    Forms, Matter, and Mind: Three Strands of Plato’s Metaphysics. [REVIEW]Mark L. McPherran - 1985 - Idealistic Studies 15 (3):271-272.
    This work “is an attempt to analyse critically Plato’s views on mind and body and more particularly on the mind-body relationship within the wider setting of Plato’s metaphysics”. The book additionally promises to save Plato from Cartesian dualism, arguing instead that Plato’s dualism is of a sort which “may not fall victim to the accusations raised against Cartesianism”. Given the dearth of book-length studies on the mind-body relationship in Plato, this project is well motivated, and it is impressively researched as (...)

    Love in the Western and Confucian Traditions: Response to Chung‐Ying Cheng.Mark L. Mcpherran - 2012 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 39 (4):495-506.
    I agree with Professor Cheng's critique that Kant shows that Practical Reason points toward a model of human subjectivity and human autonomy congenial to Confucian thinking. In the Western rationalist tradition also there are threads that connect to other world views in an illuminating fashion if we investigate their historical roots. Using Professor Cheng's method, I claim that in the West there began a humanistic tradition that bears affinities to Confucius and which itself is now being transformed by its encounter (...)
