When Plato wrote his dialogues, written texts were disseminated primarily by performance and oral recitation. Literacy, however, was spreading, and Frank is the first to point out that the dialogues offer two distinct ways of learning to read. One method treats learning to read as being led to true beliefs about letters and syllables by an authoritative teacher. The other method, recommended by Socrates, focuses on learning to read by trial and error, and on the opinions learners come to have based on their own fallible experiences. In all the dialogues in which these methods appear, learning to read is likened to coming to know, and the significant differences between the two methods are at the center of Frank's argument. When learning to read is understood as a practice of assimilating true beliefs by an authoritative teacher, it reflects the dominant scholarly account of Plato's philosophy as authoritative knowledge and of Plato's politics as, if not authoritarian, then at least anti-democratic. Rulers should have such authoritative knowledge and be philosopher-kings. However, learning to read or coming to know by way of Socrates' method, leads to quite a different set of conclusions. Professor Frank resists the claim that Plato's dialogues seek to endorse or enforce a hierarchy of knowledge and politics. Instead, she argues that they offer a philosophical education in self-authorization by representing and enacting challenges to all claims to expert authority, including those of philosophy.

'A multi-faceted page turner. The perfect way to meet Jack Dylan.' Alison Bruce, author of I Did It For Us From the husband and wife team who are the storyline consultants to TV’s Happy Valley and Scott & Bailey, comes the brand new book in the D.I. Jack Dylan series, which takes the reader back to where it all began... When Detective Jack Dylan heads home after a residential course, he has no idea that an extraordinary succession of events is about to turn his life upside down. A vicious, unprovoked attack is just the start. Soon his wife is dead and his step-daughter - dangerously depressed - is being expelled from university for drug use. And at work, two teenagers have gone missing. An ordinary man might break under the strain, but Dylan is no ordinary man. He knows that his survival depends on him carrying on regardless, burying himself in his work. He is determined to pursue the criminal elements behind the events - both personal and professional - whether his superiors like it or not. And, as his family disintegrates around him, a newcomer to the admin department, Jennifer Jones, seems to offer some sort of salvation. Life may have changed, but nothing will stand in the way of Dylan’s quest for justice.

A riveting debut thriller by Andrea J. Johnson, and the first in the VICTORIA JUSTICE series. Twenty-five year old Victoria Justice has never really gotten over a near drowning at the hands of a high school bully, but has attempted to build her confidence and career as a court stenographer under the mentorship of The Honorable Frederica Scott Wannamaker, the county's first African-American Superior Court judge. But when her old nemesis appears on the court docket, Victoria's carefully crafted world implodes—evidence goes missing, a potential mistrial abounds, and the judge winds up drowned in the courthouse bathroom. Victoria realizes her transcript of the proceedings unlocks everyone's secrets...including the murderer's. Plagued with guilt for failing to protect her mentor, Victoria teams up with Ashton North, the handsome state trooper accused of mishandling trial evidence, and starts to untangle the conspiracy surrounding the case. Meanwhile, the deputy attorney general hangs himself during the Post-Election Festival. Everyone is quick to accept his suicide note as a sign of guilt, but Victoria is convinced the truth behind her mentor's death lies in the trial transcript. Can she suppress her fears long enough to crack the code, find her voice, and avoid the crosshairs of the killer?

"Want to be taken to another world, a time and place you have only dreamed of but never dared go? Justice will be your guide: looking into your soul, fifi nding your passion within, taking you into a dark and mysterious world, and screaming gotcha! Do not fear, witness the beauty which the darkness holds: sadness, hope, desire, a sea of emotions in every word. Let go and free your mind. Dance with Justice in the darkness and feel your passion." ~A. Hults "Justice proves social media and technology are weak imitators against creative writing, and insists on prying the reader's mind open with complicit care or, when necessary, a thought provoking, poetic battering ram. Hints of romantic bliss, inhumane punishment, and righting the wrongs of mankind's foolishness are abundant and uplifting, yet happy endings are not guaranteed. The reader needs to spend less time attempting to understand the motivation and more on what wild ride this literary carnival barker will point toward next. Justice presents a beguiling canvas, demanding the individual reader decide how every story should end." ~D. Smith "Turn the lights down low, get comfortable, and open the cover of Poetic Justice and be swept away into another time and place. Justice lifts you to the pinnacle of desire and leaves you shaking your head at the injustice around us. Dark and alluring, this book reaches into the fabric of your soul, and with biting nails pulls you into the ecstasy contained within." ~J. Bouyat
