    Plato: Laws. Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought. Edited by Malcolm Schofield; Translation by Tom Griffith. Cambridge University Press, 2016. [REVIEW]John M. Armstrong - 2018 - Ancient Philosophy 38 (2):455–460.
    For students and the general reader, this is the best English translation of the entire 'Laws' available. I give several examples of important lines that are translated well in this edition, but I take issue with the translation of some other lines and with part of Schofield's introduction on grounds that these parts do not reveal Plato's political and cosmic holism as clearly as they could have.

    Du vin pour le Collège de veille? Mise en lumière d'un lien occulté entre le Choeur de Dionysos et le νυκτερινος συλλογος dans les Lois de Platon.Annie Larivée - 2003 - Phronesis 48 (1):29-53.
    Ce texte cherche à montrer que plusieurs allusions textuelles indiquent l'existence d'un lien significatif entre le Choeur de Dionysos et le νυκτ∊ρινος συλλογος dans les _Lois_ de Platon. Cette hypothèse inédite se trouve confirmée par un examen attentif des diverses correspondances entre les deux instances, examen qui permet en outre de préciser la nature de leur lien. Il semble d'abord que le Choeur de Dionysos ait pour rôle d'apporter un complément pédagogique de «musique appliquée» à l'élite politique et scientifique de (...)

    Two Points In Plato's Penal Code.Trevor J. Saunders - 1963 - Classical Quarterly 13 (02):194-199.
    At the beginning of Book 5 Plato catalogues the ways in which men ‘dishonour’ ([Greek text] 727 c 3) their souls, and at 728 ab sums up by saying that any man who does not practise what the lawgiver describes as noble and good is treating his soul dishonourably. He goes on to say that hardly anyone takes account of [Greek text] (728 b 2), which is to cut oneself off from good men and be completely assimilated to the bad (...)

    Plato's Penal Code: Tradition, Controversy, and Reform in Greek Penology.J. Saunders Trevor - 1994 - Clarendon Press.
    This is a fascinating and important study of ideas of justice and punishment held by the ancient Greeks. The author traces the development of these ideas from Homer to Plato, analysing in particular the completely radical new system of punishment put forward by Plato in his dialogue the Laws. From traditional Greek ideas of cursing and pollution through to Plato's views on homicide and poisoning by doctors, this enlivening book has a wealth of insights to interest both ancient historians and (...)

    In response to woozley's paper in "philosophical quarterly" 22 (1972), 303-17, This article argues: (a) that plato's penology in the laws is radically 'reformative'. (b) that his overriding concern is not with blame or guilt or moral responsibility, But with an exact diagnosis and then 'cure' of the criminal's 'unjust' state of mind. (c) that he uses 'hekousios' and 'akousios' in effect in the sense 'prompted by injustice in the soul of the agent' and 'not thus prompted' respectively. (d) that (...)

    Platonic Myths and Straussian Lies: The Logic of Persuasion.Kenneth Moore - 2009 - Polis 26 (1):89-115.
    This article undertakes to examine the reception of Platonic theories of falsification in the contemporary philosophy of Leo Strauss and his adherents. The aim of the article is to consider the Straussian response to, and interaction with, Platonic ideas concerning deception and persuasion with an emphasis on the arguments found in the Laws. The theme of central interest in this analysis is Plato's development of paramyth in the Laws. Paramyth entails the use of rhetorical language in order to persuade the (...)

    Eros, Hybris and Mania: Love and Desire in Plato's Laws and Beyond.Kenneth Moore - 2007 - Polis 24 (1):112-133.
    The themes of hybris, eros and mania are interconnected in Plato's final opus, the Laws, regarding his narrator's construction of sexually accepted norms for his 'second-best', utopian society. This article examines this formulation, its psychological characteristics and philosophical underpinnings. The role and function of his social programme are considered in the context of the Laws and the hypothetical polis outlined therein. However, this particular formulation is not a new development in later Platonic thought. It is, rather, a logical extension of (...)

    Politics And Medicine: Plato's Final Word Part Ii: A Rivalry Dissolved: The Restoration Of Medicine's Techne Status In The Laws.Susan Levin - 2010 - Polis 27 (2):193-221.
    This article challenges the widespread assumption that Plato's valuation of medicine remains steady across the corpus. While Plato's opposition to poetry and sophistry/rhetoric endures, in the Laws he no longer views medicine as a rival concerning phusis and eudaimonia. Why is this dispute laid to rest, even as the others continue? This article argues that the Laws' developments with a bearing on medicine stem ultimately from the philosopher-ruler's disappearance. The deeper appreciation of good medical practice that ensues, combined with an (...)

    Plato's Laws on Correctness as the Standard of Art.Eugenio Benitez - 2009 - Literature & Aesthetics 19 (1):237-256.
    Most readers of Plato’s dialogues would probably think of him as likely to approve more of the old masters than of new art. The old masters were on the whole far more realistic than modern painters—compare, say, Velázquez Innocent X (1650) with Matisse The Snail (1953)2—and Plato often seems to take issue with an artist if he departs even slightly from realism. A long section of the Ion, for example, is dedicated to showing that experts in charioteering, medicine, and other (...)

    Plato's Theology for Adolescents: An Interpretation of the Tenth Book of Plato's Laws.Bryan Mark Benson - 1997 - Dissertation, Boston College
    Book X of Plato's Laws treats the subject of theology. The discussion of this subject becomes necessary when the Athenian Stranger raises the political problem of crimes against the gods, in particular of the impious speech and action of insolent or hubristic young people. According to the Athenian, the criminal speech and actions of the impious are due to their holding one of three mistaken opinions about the gods: they believe either that the gods do not exist, that the gods (...)

    The ideal which Plato consistently endorses and develops in the Laws is one of a city which, like the ideal soul, is perfectly at peace with its inner conflicts. The law is presented as a remedy for the destabilizing influence of the sensations and emotions which make every human being an individual, before he is a citizen. The authoritarian aspect of this remedy may worry contemporary readers, but Plato supports it with his presupposition regarding the extreme weakness of human nature. (...)

    The following article reconstructs Plato’s argument for the existence of god in Laws X. The article starts with interpreting the argument for the priority of soul and continues with a discussion of the argumentation for rationality of the soul in charge of heavens . The view defended here is that Plato first defines the essential characteristics of the divine, namely self-motion and rationality, and then shows that there are entities which possess these characteristics and therefore deserve to be called gods (...)

A happy city is one in which the city's parts, i.e. the citizens, are unified under the rule of intelligence. Unlike the citizens of the Republic, the citizens of the Laws can all share the same true judgments (...)
