UPDATE: The University of Manchester has just issued a press release (here) to announce the publication. Perhaps the most significant part of the book argues that Plato’s symbols force a radical rethink of Plato’s ethical philosophy, and especially his philosophy of love.
After a busy spring, my new book The Musical Structure of Plato’s Dialogues will appear in late August. Acumen Publishing has done a great job and brought out a handsome volume in record time. They have simultaneously published both the hardback and paperback in both the UK and USA (click for Amazon). This book contains many new ideas and many new kinds of evidence for hidden musical symbols in Plato. It shows that interpretations of Plato’s writings on love (the Symposium) and religion (the Euthyphro) will have to change in surprising ways. This book was revised in real time as I responded to many questions and criticisms that came in during the series of lectures I gave, and I thank all who contributed.
