Item Description...
In Plato's dialogues, an idealized Socrates expounds the ideas for which Plato will, until the end of history, be famous. The world of Forms; the ideal Republic with its totalitarian masterplan; the tribute to Eros, god of love (or at least of homosexual love); the promise of the soul's salvation -- all this has come down to us in the distinctive tone of voice of Plato's teacher. But how much of it did Socrates believe? Were Plato's contemporaries really taken in? And what lay behind his philosophy, from which the real world of men and women was so rigorously excluded?

Until the discovery of the Xanthippic Inquiries, we had no answer to those questions. Now at last the real Plato is revealed to us, by the women whom he banished from his arguments. In this brilliant and witty expose, the mask of abstraction is lifted, to reveal the truth that lies beneath. And the truth is Xanthippe: wife of Socrates, teacher of Aristotle, and Founding Mother of the Western world. This is a book that no feminist can afford to ignore.

Review of Scruton's 'Xanthippic Dialogues'  Feb 21, 2010
It's a shame this work doesn't seem to be receiving much attention. Admittedly, one can't really reap all the satire of this excellent collection unless one is familiar with Plato, and, indeed, Greek culture in general. However, for the interest Grecophile, this is an amazing work of satire. Scruton presents several dialogues modeled on Platonic originals, and writes the work as if he were a scholar translating. There are forwards to the works and scholarship within footnotes on the 'translation' and 'historical context.' It's a really fun work (admittedly, I felt the Symposium dragged on a bit). I'm looking forward to the sequel.
