    Arystotelesowskie Ujęcie Homonimii.Mikołaj Domaradzki - 2016 - Diametros 50:1-24.
    The purpose of the paper is to discuss Aristotle’s account of homonymy. The major thesis advocated here is that Aristotle considers both entities and words to be homonymous, depending on the object of his criticism. Thus, when he takes issue with Plato, he tends to view homonymy more ontologically, upon which it is entities that become homonymous. When, on the other hand, he gainsays the exegetes or the sophists, he is inclined to perceive homonymy more semantically, upon which it is (...)

    Ideas in and problems of the philosophy of language surface frequently in Plato's dialogues. This forms the basis of the present article. Some passages briefly formulate, or presuppose, views about names, signification, truth, or falsehood; others are extended discussions of important themes of the philosophy of language. Basic predicative expressions are an integral part of Plato's philosophy of language. The article further emphasizes on the importance of forms as missing standards. Plato does say that perceptible particulars derive their names from (...)

    Plato's Theory of Language.Morriss Henry Partee - 1972 - Foundations of Language 8 (1):113-132.
    Origins of language. It is asserted that the work reveals an issue crucial to his philosophy, namely his ambiguous response to language. Plato's most basic assertion is that words are mere imitations of reality and cannot be trusted to be an accurate mode of transmitting knowledge. Plato refuses to take a systematic position towards language by mingling the divine with the human and the conventional with the natural. The easily proven ambiguity of plato's theory of language is shown to be (...)

    Heraclitus and Plato on the Language of the Real.Thomas M. Robinson - 1991 - The Monist 74 (4):481-490.
    It is a commonplace of Platonic scholarship that for Plato a significant, if not the most significant feature of Heracliteanism was the so-called “doctrine of flux”. In this paper I wish to discuss another feature of what seems to me basic Heraclitean doctrine that is taken over by Plato, albeit without explicit recognition of the fact, as a central tenet of his cosmopsychology: the notion of the language of the real.

    Teratology and Truth: Socrates' Investigation of Poetic Names in the "Cratylus".Ashley Elliott Pryor - 2001 - Dissertation, The Pennsylvania State University
    This dissertation explores the emergence of the textual discipline of etymology in order to demonstrate its difference from earlier investigations of names---particularly those of Socrates in Plato's Cratylus , and to suggest the implications that this difference has for thinking about truth. My project is motivated by a two-fold observation: the historical fact that etymology was not established until several centuries after Plato wrote the Cratylus and that it emerges from within a political and social context that is dominated by (...)

    Words' Semantic Constitution as a Guide to Reality: The "Cratylus" Reconsidered.Susan Barbara Levin - 1993 - Dissertation, Stanford University
    Accounts of the Cratylus' historical sources, which focus typically on philosophers and sophists, have yet to explain why etymology has such a pivotal role in the dialogue. Based on extant evidence one may treat Plato's discussion of etymology as a critical response to techniques and assumptions that were of central importance to a non-philosophical, literary tradition. Plato's initial positing of $\tau\acute\varepsilon\chi\nu\eta$ status for naming, based on criteria advanced in the Gorgias, is followed by a sustained challenge thereto. Recognition of this (...)

    City, Soul, and Speech in Plato's "Cratylus": The Rhetoric of Socratic Philosophy.Andrew Scott Hertzoff - 2002 - Dissertation, University of Notre Dame
    In this dissertation, I offer a narrative reading of the Cratylus , which separates it from debates about language, and instead, by focusing on the dynamics of the interactions of the characters, discovers in it a portrait of Socrates' interaction with two men with very different reactions to the new and radical teachings of the philosophers and sophists. Socrates appeals to Hermogenes, who is immersed in the conventional aristocratic life, with a fantastic promise of an impossible art of names, and (...)

    Names, Thoughts and Objects in Plato's "Cratylus", "Theaetetus" and "Sophist".Christine J. Thomas - 1999 - Dissertation, Cornell University
    In this dissertation I explore Plato's views about the nature of language and thought, and their relations to the world. Plato is sometimes thought to hold that meaningful terms do not require referents at all. Others argue that he holds a referential theory of meaning according to which the meaning of a term just is its referent. I reject both of these views, arguing that Plato thinks that a significant term must have a referent but that the referent of a (...)

    Living by the Cratylus Hermeneutics and Philosophic Names in the Roman Empire.Harold Tarrant - 2009 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 3 (1):1-25.
    This paper is about an aspect of philosophic life, showing, in the case of one Platonic dialogue in particular, that the texts that later Platonists employed in a quasi-scriptural capacity could influence their lives in important ways. The Cratylus was seen as addressing the question of how names could be regarded as 'correct', raising the role of the name-giver to the level of the law-giver. It begins with the question of how a personal name could be correct. The ancient text (...)

    Comedy as Self-Forgetting: Implications for Sallis's Reading of Plato's Cratylus.Sonja Tanner - 2013 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 27 (2):188-198.
    I know of nothing that has caused me to dream more on Plato’s secrecy and his sphinx nature than the happily preserved petit fait that under the pillow of his deathbed there was found no “Bible,” nothing Egyptian, Pythagorean, or Platonic—but a volume of Aristophanes. How could even a Plato have endured life—a Greek life to which he said No—without an Aristophanes? Diogenes Laertius reports that Plato was reputed to have been so “well regulated”(kosmiois) as never once to have been (...)

    This paper offers an interpretation of Plato's Cratylus 427d1-431c3 that supports a reading of the dialogue as a whole as concluding in favour of a conventionalist account of naming. While many previous interpretations note the value of this passage as evidence for Platonic investigations of false propositions, this paper argues that its demonstration that there can be false (or incorrect) naming in turn refutes the naturalist account of naming; that is, it shows that a natural relation between name and nominatum (...)

    A Displacement in the Text of the Cratylus.Malcolm Schofield - 1972 - Classical Quarterly 22 (02):246-253.
    In this paper I argue that the stretch of dialogue from 385 b 2–d 1 in the Cratylus does not belong where it is found in the MSS. , but fits rather between 387 c 5 and 387 c 6. I suggest further that at any rate my negative thesis receives some measure of support from the fragments of Proclus' commentary on the dialogue.
