About the Author

David Roochnik is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Boston University, USA. He is the author of The Tragedy of Reason: Toward a Platonic Conception of Logos (1991).


“Roochnik has written the most thorough book yet about the techne analogy as the model for knowledge in Greek thinking. He forces a reconfiguration and rethinking of the entire debate about the place of the techne analogy in Plato's thought. This is an important, provocative book.”—Drew Hyland,Trinity College

“Many scholars have long suspected that Plato never sought a techne of virtue, but no one prior to Roochnik has done the hard work necessary to overcome the weight of orthodox opinion on this matter. Roochnik shows that we who live in an age enamored of things technical have much to learn from the ancient Greeks about techne itself. His important book provides us with a timely occasion to rethink what we know and the ways in which we know it.”—Jacob A. Howland,University of Tulsa
