In defense of philosophy
This book is an engagement between a great modern philosopher defending classical philosophy against an army of challengers to the very notion of philosophy as classically conceived. It is writing very much in the spirit of the scholastic disputations in the medieval universities, which produced the great summas: a mutual search for truth, a philosophical laboratory, a careful winnowing of each objection.
this important and timely book tackles one of the central issues in the relationship between the state and the individual: what is the proper scope of personal responsibility and how can it be supported through social arrangement.
Science and religion
Has science made religion intellectually implausible? does it rule out the existence of a personal God? doesn't evolution , for instance, make the whole idea of divine providence incredible? This book is a guide to dialogue going on today between scientist and believers. It identifies questions, isolates the issues and suggests new areas of understanding.
The trial of Socrates
The trial of Socrates is lovely work, which not only endorses the Athenian ideals but exemplifies them. Stone's confident use of the sources, his moral certainly, and his Stalwart faith in the decency of a free populace serve him well as he seeks to grab the philosopher by the ankles and drag him down to earth, where life and treachery and politics are all played for keeps.
