Description
Lecture notes for a course. As described in the New School course catalog, Plato’s Laws was once thought to be the book on revelation. This course treats Plato’s Laws in three sections, each to be given in the Spring of successive years. The first section deals with Books I-IV [sic). It covers the determination of the structure of law in light of the four psychic and corporeal virtues the law is meant to inculcate and regulate. Its deeper theme is the impossibility of its fulfilling its purpose and the consequences to be drawn from that impossibility. The changing relations between the Athenian Stranger and the Spartan Megillus and the Cretan Clinias form a large part of the argument of the Laws.
