Listened to this on Audible on various car commutes, and Roochnik is an engaging speaker and certainly captured my interest, even when setting off at 5am in the morning before my first coffee. Getting through these lectures involves a similar time commitment to reading Plato's Republic itself, but this allows Roochnik to provide a very in-depth exploration of the issues and his approach is commendably even-handed. The final lecture, exploring Plato's influence on subsequent western philosophers, is also very succinct and valuable. Recommended.… (mere)

Great review/intro to Greek philosophy. Well-organized and covering a decent amount of ground. Nothing new for anyone who knows the subject, but well told by a good teacher. Audible.

An Enlightened Dialogue
This course exposes the ideas of greek philosophers in a dialectic form. The thinkers are engaged in a dialogue, reacting from the ideas of his predecessors. The author examines the presocratic philosophers, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle in an understandable way and gives his insights about the many problems they posed. When exposing Socrates words, no distinction is made to adress the question about who is speaking (Socrates or Plato). The presupposition is that Socrates speaks. Plato and Aristotle works are presented as the culmination of greek wisdom. The sophist objections and thought are always mentioned. In the course they served as a bridge with modern concepts and thought. The work gives a clear exposition of greek philosophy. One will profit listening to it!… (mere)
