Description
Imagine that Plato came to life in the 21st century and embarked on a multicity speaking tour. How would he handle a cable news host who denies there can be morality without religion? How would he mediate a debate between a Freudian psychoanalyst and a tiger mom on how to raise the perfect child? And what would Plato make of Google, and of the idea that knowledge can be crowd-sourced rather than reasoned out by experts? In this surprisingly entertaining philosophical exploration, the author of The Mind-Body Problem, Properties of Light, and 36 Arguments for the Existence of God probes the deepest issues confronting us by allowing us to eavesdrop on Plato as he encounters the modern world.

"Highly original.... Rebecca Newberger Goldstein set out to showcase, in sometimes startling ways, the continuing relevance of a classic philosopher. But what's remarkable is that she actually brings off this tour de force with both madcap brilliance and commanding authority."Washington Post
