An interesting conversation between Socrates and Critobulus on how best to manage a household. The topic spills out into a general 'how to' of management which touches everything from national agriculture to training a wife one marries when she is still in her mid-teens. Much of the debate is still relevant to common sense advocates today, though as the end of my previous sentence demonstrates, not all of Xenophon's recollection is as valuable in the 21st century.
