dc.description.abstract In this chapter from Plato's Animals, Christopher P. Long tracks the philosophical life among the wolves and dogs of Plato’s Republic. Long argues that the scent-markings of the canines in the Republic leave a trail that might itself be used as a kind of cognitive map leading us to one of the central teachings of the text itself: that the philosophical life is situated precariously between the tyrannical tendencies of the wolf and the blind obedience of the well-trained dog. en
