Eric Salem is a 1977 graduate of St. John's College and received my MA and Phd from the University of Dallas in Politics and Literature. Before returning to St. John's in 1990 I spent several years in Kentucky, working with others to found a great books program within a larger university. I have taught throughout the curriculum at St. John's; in the last decade or so I have done a lot of teaching in the mathematics and science part of the program. I am the author of a book on Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics; most of the articles I have written deal with the Platonic and Aristotelian treatment of human affairs and political life. Eva, Peter and I have now translated a total of four Platonic dialogues; we are currently at work on a fifth (The Philebus).

Eva Brann is a member of the senior faculty of Sr. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland where she's taught for sixty years. She's a recipient of the National Humanities Medal. Her books include Then7 Now, The Logos of Heraclitus, Feeling Our Feelings, Homage to Americans, Open Secrets/Inward Prospects, The Music of the Republic, and Homeric Moments (all Paul Dry Books.)

Peter Kalkavage received his doctorate in philosophy at Penn State University. He has been on the faculty of St. John's College in Annapolis for forty years. In addition to co-translating the Sophist, Phaedo, Satesman, and Symposium with Eva Brann and Eric Salem, he has translated the Timaeus for Hackett Press, and is the author of the Logic of Desire: An Introduction to Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit for Paul Dry Books. He has given talks, and has published essays, on Plato, Hegel, Dante, Bach, Mozart, liberal education, and music. He is the director of the St. John's Chorus, which performs sacred music from the Renaissance to the present.
