The Drama of Ideas. Platonic Provocations in Theater and Philosophy.
Oxford University Press, 2010. 272p. Hardback. The Drama of Ideas contains a tightly woven and persuasive argument for rescuing a Platonic tradition of interactions between two disciplines: theatre and philosophy. When this unique form of writing is examined within a theatrical context, as drama, a highly innovative form of writing emerges where abstract ideas, on the one hand, and the concreteness of character and scene, on the other, are viewed in a constantly emerging, dynamic and creative interaction with each other. Puchner has produced an ambitious and innovative project. Freddie Rokem, author of Philosophers and Thespians: Thinking Performance (Publisher's information).
