Plato and Platonism

In this volume, a distinguished group of philosophers offers new insight into Platonic studies. Combining cutting-edge research with innovative analysis, the authors present fourteen essays on various dimensions of Plato's thought. Most of Plato's dialogues are examined, from such conspicuously Socratic texts as Protagoras, Euthyphro, and Crito to the allegedly late Sophist, Statesman, and Laws. Several essays explore specific philosophical problems raised in a single Platonic dialogue. Some offer in-depth analysis of one dialogue-for instance, the volume includes two very different but highly provocative essays on Timaeus. Others pursue a topic or theme that runs throughout a number of dialogues, and still others speak about the Platonic heritage and the thought of ancient philosophers who regarded themselves as faithfully preserving and transmitting the doctrines of their master. The major subject divisions of philosophy are covered, with considerable attention being paid to issues of Platonist methodology.
