Philosophy in the Contemporary World 9 (1):61-70 (2002)
This paper is a reconsideration of Platonic dialogues in the light of Taoist insights.

Furthermore, this approach brings to the surface the necessity of the dialectic relation between the yang of Western analysis and the yin of Asian intuition to the revelation of the Tao
