About the Socratic Press

"Selling books and raising hell since 1986"

The Socratic Press was founded in 1986 for the purpose of publishing works by or about John Bryant, or works which are directly complementary to the ideas or themes which Mr. Bryant has developed in the numerous books, articles and pamphlets which he has written. The Press is one of the first book publishers in the world to develop and use the technology of print-on-demand, an advance made possible by the use of Aldus (now Adobe) Pagemaker software. The Socratic Press is named for Socrates, the gadfly of ancient Athens who questioned everything, was put to death for "corrupting the youth", and who began a philosophical tradition which has endured for almost 2500 years. The Press is listed in Books in Print, Literary Marketplace, Writers Market and other industry sources.

Authors who are interested in submitting manuscripts for possible publication by the Press should know that manuscripts of any length will be considered, but cannot be acknowledged or returned unless a self-addressed stamped envelope is included with the submission.
