Read full description of the books:



Xenophon's Socratic dialogues are really interesting, and unfairly neglected, I think. Much of his picture of Socrates aligns with Plato's. Sometimes the contrast is jarring, as when Xenophon recounts Socrates saying you should study geometry, astronomy, and math only insofar as you need them for practical tasks, and going further would only make you crazy. Wut?

I even enjoyed the Oeconomicus. Especially the part about how a household needs organization, if you ever hope to find what you need when you want it. I think I'll tactfully leave this volume lying around in hopes that the other Rolfes will pick it up and stumble across pages 457-467. If one them complains about this book always being in the way, I can get Socratic on them and ask, "So you would find it convenient for this book to have a place where it belongs, and to be put there?" This is gonna be great.
