"The marks of a true multi-culturalism hidden in the methods of great classicism are present in John M. Cooper's Knowledge, Nature, and the Good... Works of loving scholarship such as this ... develop our ability to appreciate the wondrous otherness of Greek culture--of, in fact, any culture."--Arthur J. Spring, Bridges
