"These essays, a happy mixture of breadth and integration, will appeal to scholars and students in philosophy, classics, and literature as well as in political science or political theory."—Thomas L. Pangle, University of Toronto

"This is a book that is both timely and of enduring value. Timely, because the very idea of spiritedness as the politically most important component of the human soul threatens to disappear from our psychology. Enduring, in that the ten essays comprised therein constitute a permanently useful introduction to the phenomenon as it has manifested itself throughout our tradition of political philosophy."—Leon H. Craig, Canadian Philosophical Reviews
