Woodruff is the Darrell K. Royal Professor in Ethics and American Society and previously served as Dean of the School of Undergraduate Studies prior to holding the Hayden Head Regents Chair as director of Plan II. Widely known for his influential articles on Socrates and Plato, he has also published a critical edition of Plato's Hippias Major (1982) as well as translations of Plato's Ion (1983) and (with Alexander Nehamas) Symposium (1989) and Phaedrus (1995). He has also written on topics in aesthetics and ethics and translated works by Euripides, Sophocles, and Thucydides. One of America's foremost interpreters of Plato, Thucydides, and other Greek thinkers, Woodruff draws on thinking from ancient Greek philosophy and applies lessons from these highly reverent cultures to today's world in a variety of contexts - the arts, leadership, teaching, warfare, and the home.
