Socrates' "Flight into the Logoi": a non-standard interpretation of the founding document of Plato's dialectic


Ferber, Rafael (2023). Socrates' "Flight into the Logoi": a non-standard interpretation of the founding document of Plato's dialectic. In: Mouzala, Melina G. Ancient Greek dialectic and its reception. Berlin / Boston: De Gruyter, 57-81.

Abstract

The paper proposes (1.) a non-standard interpretation of the proverbial expression “deuteros plous” by giving a fresh look to Phaedo, 99c9-d1. Then (2.) it proceeds to the philosophical problem raised in this passage according to this interpretation, that is, the problem of the “hypothesis” or the “unproved principle”. It indicates finally (3.) the kernel of truth contained in the standard Interpretation and it concludes with some remarks on the “weakness of the logoi”.
