Â Â Â Â This collection had its origin in a small conference organized by Patrick Goodin in the spring of 2005 at Howard University. It expanded to include papers from an earlier memorial conference for Benardete at the New School for Social Research in December 2002 and a reflection just after his death, in November 2001, as well as reviews of his books published over the years. The essays about or inspired by Benardeteâs thoughtâon the Bible and Homer, the pre-Socratics, Plato, Aristotle and the Roman writersâsuggest the remarkable range of his teaching and studies. The centrality of Plato is evident not only in these essays but also in the reviews, by readers who appreciate the importance of Benardeteâs work, its subtlety and its depth. The volume closes with three of Benardeteâs previously unpublished essays and a bibliography of his writings.
