Comments The Argument and the Action of Plato's Laws

  • Colm Gillis

    I'm a big fan of Strauss & read 'The Laws' while reading this book. However I found this to be a major disappointment. There was very little insight & a book on 'The Laws' could have been tackled differently, e.g. picking a topic & drawing on it from the book. Book is probably best read as a handy reference.
