Plato’s Rivalry with Medicine: A Struggle and Its Dissolution // Reviews // Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews // University of Notre Dame

A review by Alex Long of Susan Levin’s new book, Plato’s Rivalry with Medicine: A Struggle and Its Dissolution at Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews. The book looks like an interesting read (or at least should be place to find the places for what I would just loosely call a certain “bio-politics” in Plato), showing how philosophy does not just get underway by differentiating itself from poetry, sophistry, and so on, but also Greek notions of medicine.
