Technê and the good in Plato's statesman and philebus

Journal of the History of Philosophy 47 (1):pp. 1-33 (2009)
My paper addresses a number of questions raised in the Statesman by the Eleatic Visitor’s identification of certain ontological conditions for the existence of art of due measure, and therefore of all the technai . My view is that evidence relevant to these questions can be found in the Philebus , and specifically, in an ontological doctrine presented at 23c–27c. What emerges from an examination of the Statesman and Philebus is a highly developed conception of technê , one that affords a place for such ordinary human activities within the broader framework of Plato’s philosophy.
