    Socrates is regarded as the founder of Western philosophical inquiry, yet he left no writings. Drawing on the various competing sources for Socrates that are available to us, Ahbel-Rappe guides the reader through the main themes and ideas of his thought and concludes by suggesting that it is the Socratic insistence on self-knowledge that makes Socrates at once so pivotal and so elusive to the student of philosophy.
