Professor Rudebusch has published extensively on Socrates. His work brings Socrates’s teaching to life for a contemporary audience by connecting them to our living concerns. His books, Socrates, Pleasure, and Value, 2002 Oxford University Press, and Socrates, 2009 Blackwell, are known for bringing a breath of fresh air to topics in Socrates’ philosophy.
We invite all students, faculty, and staff to join us at the public lecture and informal meeting with Prof. Rudebusch. Additional information may be found on Facebook at Kutztown University Student Philosophy Association or at www.kutztown.edu/philosophy.
