Pressestimmen"Seth Benardete was a scholar, a philosopher, and a most extraordinary man....Before the died on November 14, 2001, at the age of seventy-one, he was the most learned man alive - and, I venture to assert, the deepest thinker as well." - Harvey Mansfield, The Weekly Standard "There is in the United States one man who is as comfortable with the art of interpreting Homer, Herodotus, or Euripides as he is with that of understanding the most difficult problems raised by Plato's dialogues, a man who follows texts step by step and discovers their hidden meanings. That man is Seth Benardete. I have long believed that he deserves glory - that of the heroes of Homer, to be precise." - Pierre Vidal-Naquet
