About David Leibowitz

Professor Leibowitz joined the Kenyon faculty as the Bradley Post-Doctoral Fellow during the 2003-2004 school year. He currently teaches The Quest for Justice and courses in the history of ancient and modern political philosophy. Before coming to Kenyon, he taught political philosophy at Michigan State University, the University of Toronto, and Harvard University.
Professor Leibowitz's book on the Apology of Socrates won the 2010 "Delba Winthrop Award for Excellence in Political Science," an award given annually for the best first book in Political Science. He is currently working on a larger study of Plato's Phaedo, Parmenides, Symposium and Apology, dialogues tracing Socrates' development from youthful natural scientist to mature political philosopher.
