Gerard Casey is the author of what the brilliant David Gordon is calling the best history of political thought he’s ever read. We discuss several of his early chapters, on the sophists, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, and what libertarians ought to cheer — or deplore — in the their work. Brilliant, and a blast.
