The Socratica series begun with a meeting held in Senigallia, a town on the Hadriatic see the Romans called Sena Gallica.
As stated in the cover, the leading idea was to pay attention not just to Plato, but also to the context formed, first of all, by the Socratics taken as a whole.
The conference, due to the initiative of Livio Rossetti, got the support of the International Plato Society, of the Istituto Italiano per gli Studi Filosofici and above all from the Comune di Senigallia. Since its beginnings, it has been planned as a triennial meeting.
The Proceedings issued from such a conference have been edited by Livio Rossetti and Alessandro Stavru, and printed in 2008 by Levante editore, Bari.
Below few portions of the book and some reviews.
