Pleasure, Knowledge, and Being
Pleasure, Knowledge, and Being (July 1990)
An Analysis of Plato's Philebus
Cynthia Hampton - Author

Hampton illumines the overall structure of the Philebus. Taking the interrelations of pleasure, knowledge, and being as the keys to understanding the unity of the dialogue, she focuses on the central point. The analysis of both pleasure and knowledge can be understood fully only if placed within the context of the more general and fundamental question of how human life fits into the overall structure of reality.

What guides the discu...(Read More)

logos in Plato's Theaetetus
Rosemary Desjardins - Author

"Desjardins' conclusion, that the Theaetetus really does point to a particular theory of knowledge, certainly will be controversial, since for many people the idea that the Theaetetus fails to define knowledge is the cornerstone of their interpretation of Plato's later philosophical thought. But whatever one thinks about the conclusion, it must be agreed that the manner in which it is defended is intrinsically important. Desjardins s...(Read More)
Essays in Ancient Greek Philosophy III
Essays in Ancient Greek Philosophy III (July 1989)
John P. Anton - Editor
Anthony Preus - Editor

The Plato who emerges from these essays is the seminal thinker, the profound philosopher, the master of dialectic who offers, together with his insights into reality and human values, a systematically developed set of powerful devices for the articulation and defence of his ideas. In each case the discussion unfolds not as advocacy of Platonic doctrines but as critical assessment of argument, and is meant as judicious explication of the logical for...(Read More)
Platonic Studies of Greek Philosophy
Platonic Studies of Greek Philosophy (January 1989)
Form, Arts, Gadgets, and Hemlock
Robert S. Brumbaugh - Author

“Platonic Studies is a tour de force of contemporary philosophy, combining painstaking analyses of Platonic and Aristotelian texts with imaginative reconstruction. It links a revisionary interpretation of the ancient social, scientific, and technological setting for Greek philosophy with trenchant 'Platonic' criticisms of contemporary conditions. Technical analyses, such as that of the mathematical ratios structuring th...(Read More)
Plato's Theory of Explanation
Plato's Theory of Explanation (March 1988)
A Study of the Cosmological Account in the Timaeus
Anne F. Ashbaugh - Author

"The central thesis regarding the development of 'verisimilar' explanation and its relation to 'true' explanation is thought-provoking, generally well-developed and should prove controversial in the best sense of the word." -- Drew A. Hyland, Trinity College

Here is the question: what constitutes a good explanation of phenomena? Whereas true being (forms) can be known through dialectic, concrete phenomena can only be explained....(Read More)

From the Origins to Socrates
Giovanni Reale - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

Beginning with the origins of Western philosophy, the profound creation of the Hellenic genius, Reale presents an appreciation of the Naturalists, the Sophists, Socrates, and the Minor Socratics.

Special attention is paid to the Eleatics because their problems decisively mark Platonic and Aristotelian philosophy.

Interpretation of the Sophists benefits from the recent reevaluation of their thought. Socrates himself would be inco...(Read More)

Xenophon the Athenian
Xenophon the Athenian (June 1977)
The Problem of the Individual and the Society of Polis
William E. Higgins - Author

This book is a fresh study of the fourth century B.C. Greek adventurer, writer, and student of Socrates, Xenophon. An innovating author of many guises, an important source for the history of his time, a wit and a philosopher, he no longer enjoys the reputation he once did. Suggesting that such a radical de-valuation is more a reflection on nineteenth- and twentieth-century attitudes and scholarship than on the worth of Xenophon, the author in this...(Read More)
