Sean Kirkland, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University joins me for episode 35 of the Digital Dialogue. Sean's work focuses on ancient philosophy, phenomenology, 19th and 20th century continental philosophy.

Some of Sean's publications include:
"The Tragic Foundation of Aristotle's Ethics." 2009. Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal, 30:2.

"Speed and Tragedy in Cocteau and Sophocles." (forthcoming). In Interrogating Antigone, ed. Stephen Wilmer. Oxford: Oxford University Press.

"Bemerkungen zur Praxis als geschicktes Selbst-schicken in der aristotelischen Ethik und Poetik." 2008. In Denkspuren: Festschrift für Heinrich Hüni, ed. O. Cosmus and F. Kurbacher, Würzburg: Königshausen und Neumann, 29-38.

"Logos as Message from the Gods: On the Etymology of 'Hermes' in Plato's Cratylus." 2008. Bochumer philosophisches Jahrbuch für Antike und Mittelalter 12.

"On Anti-Parmenidean Temporality in Aristotle's Physics." 2007. Epoché 11;2, 49-62. 4. "The Temporality of Phronêsis in the Nicomachean Ethics." 2007. Ancient Philosophy 27, 127-40.

He joins me today to talk about a book project he is completing entitled Ontology and Self-Knowledge in Plato's Early Dialogues. Our discussion focuses on the extent to which the activity of Socratic philosophy must be permitted to strike us as strange because it is rooted in an ante-modern understanding of human thought and it's world.
