Please join the departments of Philosophy and Classics in honoring Nicholas D. Smith, the James F. Miller Professor of Humanities. Socrates: A Conference brings scholars from across the country who have been influenced by Professor Smith’s scholarly work in epistemology, ancient philosophy, and classical studies, especially his work on Socrates. The conference is free and open to the public.

He received his BA (High Honors) from the University of Rochester in 1971, and his PhD from Stanford in 1975. He is an author, co-author, editor or co-editor of over 15 books, including Plato’s Socrates (with T. C. Brickhouse), which won the “Outstanding Academic Book for 1994” award from Choice. He is also the author of more than 80 journal, encyclopedia, or dictionary articles, reviews, and translations, including three of the translations of works by Plato and Pseudo-Plato that appear in the new Plato: Complete Works from Hackett. In 1985, he won the American Philological Association Award for Excellence in the Teaching of Classics.
