New images of Plato : dialogues on the idea of the good


New images of Plato : dialogues on the idea of the good. Edited by: Reale, Giovanni; Scolnicov, Samuel; Brisson, Luc; Ferber, Rafael; Rossetti, Livio; Rowe, Christopher (2002). St. Augustine: Academia Verlag.

Abstract

Twenty-seven Plato scholars, representing as diverse a range of approaches to Plato as possible, engaged in direct dialogue with each other across their sometimes profound disagreements. In order to bring their differences into focus, the participants were asked to summarize their approaches to Plato and bring them to bear on one single text, a text whose centrality to Plato’s thought goes by no means undisputed, but which is universally deemed worthy of discussion, if only because of the place it has held in Platonic studies: the Simile of the Sun in the Republic.
The confrontations presented in this volume, in matters of method as in matters of interpretation, help to clarify the several methodologies through contrast and by putting them to test on a single, well-defined passage.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
