    In this paper I advance an interpretation of Prodicus' conception of the correctness of names or terms. I advance this interpretation through examining a distinction between pleasures and pleasure terms that several ancient authors, most importantly the fifth-century Neoplatonist Hermias, attribute to Prodicus. Since Hermias lived many centuries after Prodicus, it is questionable whether Hermias' testimony is accurate. Consequently, I first present evidence to support the view that Hermias' testimony is accurate. Subsequently, I examine the grounds and context of Prodicus' (...)

  13. David Wolfsdorf (2008). The Method Ἐξ Ὑποθέσεως at Meno 86e1-87d8. Phronesis 53 (1):35 - 64.
    Scholars ubiquitously refer to the method ἐεξ ὑποθέσεως, introduced at Meno 86e1-87d8, as a method of hypothesis. In contrast, this paper argues that the method ἐεξ ὑποθέσεως in Meno is not a hypothetical method. On the contrary, in the Meno passage, ὑπóθεσƖς means "postulate", that is, cognitively secure proposition. Furthermore, the method ἐεξ ὑποθέσεως is derived from the method of geometrical analysis. More precisely, it is derived from the use of geometrical analysis to achieve reduction, that is, reduction of a (...)

    The paper examines Socrates' avowals and disavowals of knowledge in the standardly accepted early Platonic dialogues. All of the pertinent passages are assembled and discussed. It is shown that, in particular, alleged avowals of knowledge have been variously misinterpreted. The evidence either does not concern ethical knowledge or its interpretation has been distorted by abstraction of the passage from context or through failure adequately to appreciate the rhetorical dimensions of the context or the author's dramaturgical interests. Still, six sincere Socratic (...)
