VAN HOOF, L.,
Plutarch's Practical Ethics. The Social Dynamics of Philosophy.
Oxford University Press, 2010. 328p. Hardback. A testimony to Van Hoofs impressively extensive reading, not only in the field of Plutarch studies, but widely in the areas of social studies, both ancient and modern, thus bestowing on her work a most impressive breadth of perspective Van Hoofs analysis is most enlightening. All in all, Van Hoof has produced here a most useful addition to Plutarch studies, one that should both provoke debate and direct more sympathetic attention to this area of Plutarchs work. J.
