    Socrates Vs. Callicles: Examination and Ridicule in Plato's Gorgias.David Levy - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society 2013:27-36.
    The Callicles colloquy of Plato’s Gorgias features both examination and ridicule. Insofar as Socrates’ examination of Callicles proceeds via the elenchus, the presence of ridicule requires explanation. This essay seeks to provide that explanation by placing the effort to ridicule within the effort to examine; that is, the judgment/pronouncement that something/someone is worthy of ridicule is a proper part of the elenchic examination. Standard accounts of the Socratic elenchus do not include this component. Hence, the argument of this essay suggests (...)

    Review of McPherran, M. L. (Ed), Plato's Republic: A Critical Guide. Cambridge, 2010. [REVIEW]Carolina Araujo - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society (Plato 12 (2012)).
    Cambridge University Press presents its new series of scholarly guides dedicated to specific philosophical works and the Republic is the first work of Plato to receive a volume. The 273 pages constitute a remarkable piece of contemporary scholarship, both when it comes to the valuable (although unevenly distributed) contribution to the present state of Platonic studies, and when it comes to the (poor) cooperative and dialogical work this scholarship is able to produce. As is now customary (…) - 12. Plato (...)

    Review of Thomas L. Cooksey, Plato's Symposium: A Reader's Guide, Continuum, London-New York. 2010. [REVIEW]Laura Candiotto - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society (Plato 12 (2012)).
    The book consists of four chapters (1.Context; 2. Overview of Themes; 3. Reading the Text; 4. Reception and Influence) that offer the reader guidance in reading Plato's Symposium. Secondary literature is mostly in English. The line of interpretation may be defined as partly literary and partly thematic — being aware of the philosophical significance of the adopted style. The literary part contains a detailed description of the characters and the frame story; the thematic part comprises: (…) - 12. Plato 12 (...)

    Compte Rendu de F. Pelosi, Plato: On Music, Soul and Body, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2010, 228 P.Catherine Collobert - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society (Plato 12 (2012)).
    Cet ouvrage constitue la version révisée d'une thèse de doctorat soutenue à la Scuola Normale Superiore de Pise, et traduite en anglais. Composé de quatre chapitres, l'ouvrage se propose d'abord d'examiner le rôle que Platon attribue à la musique dans l'éducation, pour ensuite analyser la relation que la musique entretient avec l'âme et le corps. F. Pelosi étudie la conception platonicienne de la musique et envisage son importance pour comprendre non seulement la relation corps-esprit chez Platon, mais (…) - 12. (...)

    Compte Rendu de J. B. Kennedy,The Musical Structure of Plato's Dialogues, Durham, Acumen, 2011, 318 P.Catherine Collobert - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society (Plato 12 (2012)).
    Cet ouvrage, composé de huit chapitres et de neuf appendices (qui contiennent des précisions utiles sur la méthode proposée), présente une thèse originale et controversée selon laquelle une structure musicale sous-tend les dialogues platoniciens, et en permet une plus riche compréhension. J. B. Kennedy s'appuie sur deux dialogues, le Banquet et l'Euthyphron pour la démontrer. Avant d'introduire sa méthodologie, il prend soin de tracer l'origine de ce type d'interprétation pour en défendre la pertinence. (…) - 12. Plato 12 (2012).

    Review of Moore, Kenneth Royce. Plato, Politics and a Practical Utopia.London: Continuum. 2012. ISBN 978-1-4411-5317-3. [REVIEW]Dylan Futter - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society (Plato 12 (2012)).
    In Plato, Politics and a Practical Utopia Kenneth Royce Moore offers a working model of Magnesia, the city of Plato's Laws. His method is to treat the “second-best city” “as if it were a real polis of the ancient world” (p. 82). Moore's conclusion is that Plato has created a “fairly large city”, with some unusual institutional features, but one that is “strangely practical” and firmly grounded in reality (p. ix). The Laws is often said to be a long and (...)

    « Topos » en question dans l'introduction du Sophiste (216a1-217a1).Nathalie Nercam - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society (Plato 12 (2012)).
    Au début du Sophiste, Socrate demande au visiteur éléate ce qu’ont pensé des genres philosophe, sophiste et politique, « ceux » qui sont de ce lieu-là ». L’article a pour but d’éclairer cette dernière expression et en particulier son mot clef « topos ». Il est montré que les significations de ce terme, dans son contexte, sont multiples et que cette diversité, loin d’apporter la confusion, permet au contraire et précisément d’ouvrir les diverses perspectives du dialogue. At the beginning of (...)

    La « Guerre d'Elée » a-t-elle eu « lieu » ?Nathalie Nercam - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society (Plato 12 (2012)).
    Dans la première partie du Théétète, Socrate présente l’opposition entre pluralisme et monisme sous la forme métaphorique de la Guerre de Troie. Cette dramaturgie particulière permet à Platon de faire valoir une question philosophique qui proviendrait de Parménide. La mise en image platonicienne interroge en fait la réalité et le sens de khôra/topos. In the first part of Theaetetus, Socrates shows the opposition between pluralism and monism through the metaphoric form of the Trojan War. This particular dramatization allows Plato to (...)

    Socratic Philosophy, Rationalism, And.Scott J. Senn - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society (Plato 12 (2012)).
    The main aim of this paper is to explain why Plato's Socrates devotes himself to philosophy. In so doing, I hope also to show that he does not sincerely believe that any of his decisions, about philosophy or anything, involve any kind of divine intervention. As my conclusions are contrary to a good bit of first-rate, recent scholarship on the subject, and also contrary to part of what Socrates himself says in Plato's Apology of Socrates, I think it is especially (...)

    Plato's Republics.Harold Tarrant - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society (Plato 12 (2012)).
    Various ancient sources refer to the Platonic work that we know as Republic in the plural. Aristotle seems to have made it possible to refer to politeiai as ‘constitutions’, actual or written, and therefore some of our texts are best explained as references to Plato’s two written constitutions, Republic and Laws. One neglected reference that may perhaps be explained in this way occurs in the anonymous Antiatticista. A large number of references from the Alexandrian school of Platonism in late antiquity (...)

    Virtue, Practice, and Perplexity in Plato's Meno.William Wians - 2013 - Plato: The Internet Journal of the International Plato Society (Plato 12 (2012)).
    Plato's Meno presents a deceptively simple surface. Plato begins by having his character Meno ask Socrates how virtue is acquired. Instead of having Socrates respond directly, Plato has him divert the conversation to the question of what virtue is. But Plato's Meno isn't accustomed to the rigors of Socratic inquiry, and so Plato allows him to force the discussion back toward a version of his original question. After a series of false starts and frustrations, Plato ends his dialogue with (…) (...)
