The Other Plato
The Other Plato (December 2012)
The Tübingen Interpretation of Plato's Inner-Academic Teachings
Dmitri Nikulin - Editor

Collected writings on Plato’s unwritten teachings.

Offering a provocative alternative to the dominant approaches of Plato scholarship, the Tübingen School suggests that the dialogues do not tell the full story of Plato’s philosophical teachings. Texts and fragments by his students and their followers—most famously Aristotle’s Physics—point to an “unwritten doct...(Read More)

2013 Symposium Book Award, presented by the Symposium: Canadian Journal of Continental Philosophy

A provocative close reading revealing a radical, proto-phenomenological Socrates.

On Plato's Symposium
Steven Berg - Author

Provocative reinterpretation of Plato’s Symposium.

An original analysis of one of Plato’s most well-known and pivotal dialogues, this study is based upon the effort to think together the most manifest themes of the Symposium (the nature of eros and the relation between poetry and philosophy) with its less obvious but no less essential themes (the character of the city and the nature and limi...(Read More)

Platonic Legacies
Platonic Legacies (October 2004)
John Sallis - Author

Demonstrates how archaic Platonism has a profound significance for contemporary thought.

In Platonic Legacies John Sallis addresses certain archaic or exorbitant moments in Platonism. His concern is to expose such moments as those expressed in the Platonic phrase "beyond being" and in the enigmatic word chora. Thus he ventures to renew chorology and to bring it to bear, most directly, on Platon...(Read More)
 
 
Questioning Platonism
Questioning Platonism (September 2004)
Continental Interpretations of Plato
Drew A. Hyland - Author

Explores interpretations of Plato by Heidegger, Derrida, Irigaray, Cavarero, and Gadamer.

Given the conception of philosophy held by continental thinkers, and in particular their greater sensitivity to the kinship of philosophy and literature, Drew A. Hyland argues that they should be much more attentive to the literary dimension of Plato's thinking than they have been. He believes they would find in the dialogues not...(Read More)

Plato's Introduction to the Question of Justice (November 2000)
Devin Stauffer - Author

An in-depth investigation of the views of justice present in the opening sections of Plato's Republic.

Plato's Introduction to the Question of Justice uncovers the heart of the Platonic analysis of justice by focusing on the crucial opening sections of the Republic. Stauffer argues that the dialectical confrontations with ordinary opinion presented in these sections provide the basis for Plato's view of justice, and that ...(Read More)
 
 
Plato's Socrates as Educator
Plato's Socrates as Educator (October 2000)
Gary Alan Scott - Author

Examines and evaluates Socrates' role as an educator in Plato's dialogues.

Despite his ceaseless efforts to purge his fellow citizens of their unfounded opinions and to bring them to care for what he believes to be the most important things, Plato's Socrates rarely succeeds in his pedagogical project with the characters he encounters. This is in striking contrast to the historical Socrates, who spawned the careers of Plato, Xenophon, a...(Read More)
 
 
Symposia
Symposia (August 1999)
Plato, the Erotic, and Moral Value
Louis A. Ruprecht Jr. - Author

Argues that the underlining of erotic matters in Plato's dialogues marks the most significant moment in his career.

Socrates was wise, because he knew that he did not know anything; this has long been the prevailing wisdom of the Socratic-Platonic tradition. In Plato's Middle Period --spanning dialogues such as Phaedo, Symposium, Republic, and Phaedrus--Socrates consistently claims to have knowledge in one...(Read More)
 
 
Plato's Craft of Justice
Plato's Craft of Justice (November 1995)
Richard D. Parry - Author

Shows that Plato's middle dialogues develop and extend, rather than reject, philosophical positions taken in the early dialogues.

This book traces the development of Plato's analogy between craft and virtue from Euthydemus and Gorgias through the central books of the Republic. It shows that Plato's middle dialogues develop and extend, rather than reject, philosophical positions taken in the early dia...(Read More)
