Six papers, and commentaries on them, are from various meetings of the Colloquium during the 2005-06 academic year. A seventh, by Eric Brown, was printed in the previous volume, but without footnotes, so is printed here again in full. The topics this year include force and compulsion in Aristotle's ethics; consciousness and introspection in Plotinus and Augustine; and goat-stags, philosopher-kings, and eudaimonism in the Republic. Only names are indexed. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
