Plato Rediscovered: Human Value and Social Order

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers (1995)

What is the nature of norms and values for the constitution of human society and culture? In this groundbreaking work, T. K. Seung shows that this was the ultimate question for Plato throughout his life, and that he gave not one but two answers, thus twice inventing political philosophy as the science of all sciences. Providing a thematically unified interpretation of his dialogues on the grand scale, Seung retraces Plato's journey of invention. Plato Rediscovered extends the project Seung began in Intuition and Construction and Kant's Platonic Revolution . A work that will radically alter our understanding of the philosopher
