The essays gathered in this collection demonstrate the breadth and depth of Aryeh Kosman’s scholarship over the past thirty-five years. Virtues of Thought is a very welcome contribution to Ancient Greek scholarship and includes several seminal essays in the study of Plato and Aristotle. Kosman’s highly engaging readings bring difficult ancient texts to new life and make timeless questions feel timely.—Christopher P. Long, Pennsylvania State University

Kosman is one of the most interesting and insightful readers of Plato and Aristotle of his generation; he is in fact one of the few people equally interesting and insightful on both authors. Many fine readers of Aristotle have no ear for Plato and many readers with Kosman’s sensitivity to the literary dimensions of Plato are ill-equipped to deal with the rigors of argument featured no less in the work of Plato than in that of Aristotle. Virtues of Thought is the work of a real master.—Jennifer Whiting, University of Toronto
