    Rational actors? Hippias and Aristogeiton
    Schole 13 (1): 19-31. 2019.
    This paper seeks to address the extent to which ancient historical actors might be seen to have exhibited what might be described as rational motives.

    Leo Strauss and Aristophanes
    Idealistic Studies 44 (2-3): 179-192. 2014.
    Leo Strauss is one of a handful of political philosophers to turn his gaze to the political thought of Aristophanes. In his book Socrates and Aristophanes, Strauss provides one of the longest, most methodical, and most comprehensive studies of the Aristophanic corpus. Taking as its starting point Strauss’s interpretation of Aristophanes’s Frogs—as it pertains to the political poetics of Aeschylus and Euripides—this essay seeks to demonstrate that Strauss’s reading of Aristophanes was influenced …Read more
