Description

Xenophon recounted several Socratic dialogues which included his Symposium and Oeconomicus and both are concerned with Athenian private life. They are literary creations that reveal Xenophon as a skilled literary artist, an innovative thinker, and far from merely reflecting the conventional thinking of the world around him.

  • A new translation of two of Xenophon's most famous works
  • Two remarkable works for their unprecedented acknowledgement of the value of the sphere of women, within the home, and of the potential for women and slaves to display virtue that equals, and at times even exceeds, that of citizen men
  • Alongside Xenophon's other Socratic dialogues these works are of great interest for the depiction of a Socrates who is fascinatingly unlike Plato
  • Explanatory notes and up-to-date select bibliography
