    Plato’s Conception of Justice and the Question of Human Dignity.Marek Piechowiak - 2019 - Berlin, Niemcy: Peter Lang Academic Publishers.
    This book is the first comprehensive study of Plato’s conception of justice. The universality of human rights and the universality of human dignity, which is recognised as their source, are among the crucial philosophical problems in modern-day legal orders and in contemporary culture in general. If dignity is genuinely universal, then human beings also possessed it in ancient times. Plato not only perceived human dignity, but a recognition of dignity is also visible in his conception of justice, which forms the (...)

    Can a Daoist Sage Have Close Relationships with Other Human Beings?Joanna Iwanowska - 2017 - Diametros 52:23-46.
    This paper explores the compatibility between the Daoist art of emptying one’s heart-mind and the art of creating close relationships. The fact that a Daoist sage is characterized by an empty heart-mind makes him somewhat different from an average human being: since a full heart-mind is characteristic of the human condition, the sage transcends what makes us human. This could alienate him from others and make him incapable of developing close relationships. The research goal of this paper is to investigate (...)

    Socrates and the Fat Rabbis.Daniel Boyarin - 2009 - University of Chicago Press.
    What kind of literature is the Talmud? To answer this question, Daniel Boyarin looks to an unlikely source: the dialogues of Plato. In these ancient texts he finds similarities, both in their combination of various genres and topics and in their dialogic structure. But Boyarin goes beyond these structural similarities, arguing also for a cultural relationship. In _Socrates and the Fat Rabbis_, Boyarin suggests that both the Platonic and the talmudic dialogues are not dialogic at all. Using Michael Bakhtin’s notion (...)

    Challenging the Established Order.Eric C. Sanday - 2012 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 16 (2):197-216.
    In this article I argue that Socrates sees one important truth in the position Callicles represents in the Gorgias: it is necessary in the case of extreme philosophical provocation to be able to overthrow completely the received order and to maintain oneself in the face of unimagined possibility. Without this faith in the power of wisdom to overturn and destroy received wisdom, philosophy would not be able to shepherd the good into the world in Socratic fashion. Interpreters are generally correct (...)

    Contemplation and Virtue in Plato.F. Rosen - 1980 - Religious Studies 16 (1):85 - 95.
    This paper has been prompted by the conviction that a number of ethical and political doctrines in Plato remain obscure and somewhat unintelligible unless related to the contemplative experience of the Platonic philosopher. 1 I shall concentrate here on one such doctrine, the distinction between philosophic and popular virtue, especially as it appears in the Phaedo and the Gorgias . But in order first to clarify our conception of the relationship between contemplation and virtue, I shall examine the fourteenth-century English (...)

    Plato on the Value of Philosophy: The Art of Argument in the Gorgias and Phaedrus.Tushar Irani - 2017 - Cambridge University Press.
    Plato was the first philosopher in the Western tradition to reflect systematically on rhetoric. In this book, Tushar Irani presents a comprehensive and innovative reading of the Gorgias and the Phaedrus, the only two Platonic dialogues to focus on what an art of argument should look like, treating each of the texts individually, yet ultimately demonstrating how each can best be understood in light of the other. For Plato, the way in which we approach argument typically reveals something about our (...)

    Rhetoric is at present the object of a rehabilitation on a grand scale, all the more as it overlaps the fields of literature, linguistics, and philosophy. Actually, if philosophy rejects and removes rhetoric, it is nevertheless, as a method of word, wholly impregnated with it. To investigate the complex relationship of mutual implication in which rhetoric and philosophy are involved is part and parcel of this plan of re-evaluation of rhetoric as “discourse art” with a view to a re-definition of (...)

    This dissertation examines the quarrel between rhetoric and philosophy in fifth century Athens. Focusing upon the ethical dimensions of the struggle, it discusses how the formation of the souls of students as part of rhetorical pedagogy was disputed among rhetoricians and philosophers. It looks at works of Gorgias, Lysias, and Isocrates, for their contributions to the growing art of rhetoric and for their development of the technique of ethos, which raises numerous ethical questions. ;Through a reading of Plato's Gorgias and (...)

    A filosofia se desenvolveu durante uma época na qual a habilidade de persuadir era considerada fundamental para quem quisesse ter sucesso na pólis - daí o prestígio da Retórica entre os atenienses. Platão, porém, no diálogo Górgias critica essa atividade. Mas ao criticá-la não condena a persuasão, elemento fundamental para o ensino.

    O tratado de Górgias sobre o nada é dividido por meio da prova de três teses diferentes: 1) que o nada é ou existe; 2) que mesmo que haja algo, não pode ser conhecido; 3) que mesmo que pudesse ser conhecido, não poderia ser comunicado a outrem. Estas teses são tão opostas a Parmênides quanto qualquer tese poderia sê-lo. O tratado de Górgias é uma proeza da polêmica antiparmenidiana. Sua dialética também é uma façanha ao reduzir algo ao absurdo, porque (...)

    Victims and Persecutors: The Rhetoric of Moral Authority as Constructed in Plato's "Gorgias", Postmodern Problematics, and Hollywood Narratives.Cheryl Ann Brown - 1998 - Dissertation, The University of Texas at Arlington
    This dissertation examines the victim/persecutor basis of Western morality in order to suggest how and why this binary may be used to interpret and rewrite cultural and historical narratives of oppression. Chapter 1 consists of a close reading of Plato's Gorgias in order to discuss the way that Western culture identifies and defines morality. Although in Plato's scheme of things, wrongdoers and the ones who suffer wrong are not as symbiotically related as victims and persecutors are in modern ethics, nevertheless (...)

    Callicles: From 'Here' to Hades.Andrea Tschemplik - 2008 - Polis 25 (1):79-93.
    In Plato's Gorgias Callicles argues for a life rooted in insatiable desire and the endless experience of pleasure, justifying this by appealing to nature, with examples of the lion, Xerxes, and Heracles. This essay shows that Callicles' examples undermine his own claims. Socrates examines the effects of Callicles' imperialistic hedonism on the soul. Socrates locates Callicles in Hades twice: first demonstrating that insatiable desire amounts to infinite neediness, then alerting Callicles to the consequences of the hedonistic life. This essay argues (...)

    According to Plato and Aristotle, the confusion of sophistry and philosophy in the opinion of Socrates' fellow citizens in Athens ultimately led to his trial and execution. This essay seeks to highlight and clarify the resemblance and the fundamental distinction between sophistry and philosophy, especially with respect to the art of rhetoric articulated by Gorgias in his Encomium of Helen and interrogated by Socrates in Plato's Gorgias. Rivals in their use of persuasive speeches, Gorgias and Socrates embody the quarrel between (...)

    Rhetoric and the Defence of Philosophy in Plato's Gorgias.T. Smith - 2003 - Polis 20 (1-2):62-84.
    In his Gorgias, Plato is not merely concerned with criticizing Sophists, tyrants, or immoral uses of rhetoric. Rather he explores the harmful consequences of living without loving wisdom. A large part of the dialogue is devoted to pointing out the difficulties associated with practicing philosophy as a way of life. These difficulties are so great that the best way of arguing for its practice is to dramatize the harmful consequences inherent in rival ways of life that deny the need for (...)

    E.R. Dodds' 1959 edition of Plato's Gorgias is a conventional treatment of this dialogue, aimed at audiences interested in close study of the text. Dodds himself regretted this outcome. He felt he had lost sight of an earlier goal, formulated at a time of political turmoil on the eve of World War II, of using the Gorgias to bring out 'both the resemblance and the difference between Plato's situation and that of the intellectual today'.
