    Leo Strauss.


    Cornell University Press: 1972. First edition. Hardcover in a jacket. Very good. Book has dings on the corners of the boards, but this is a crisp copy. Jacket has slight scuffing and along-the-edges chipping. From the library of Harry Berger, Jr. 


    "Socrates discusses courage or manliness with Euthydemos. In this case too, it appears, just as in the cases of piety and justice, that virtue is knowledge: courage is knowledge of the terrible or dangerous things. There is however one crucial difference between courage and those two virtues: courage has no relation to law."
