    Hybrid Varieties of Pleasure and the Complex Case of the Pleasures of Learning in Plato's Philebus.Cristina Ionescu - 2008 - Dialogue 47 (3-4):439-461.
    ABSTRACT: This article addresses two main concerns: first, the relation between the truth/falsehood and purity/impurity criteria as applied to pleasure, and, second, the status of our pleasures of learning. In addressing the first, I argue that Plato keeps the truth/falsehood and purity/impurity criteria distinct in his assessment of pleasures and thus leaves room for the possibility of hybrid pleasures in the form of true impure pleasures and false pure pleasures. In addressing the second issue, I show that Plato's view is (...)

    The Mythical Introduction of Recollection in the Meno (81A5–E2).Cristina Ionescu - 2006 - Journal of Philosophical Research 31:153-170.
    This essay explores the relevance of Socrates’ mythical introduction of recollection in the Meno. I argue that the passage at 81a5–e2 addresses different levels of understanding, a superficial and a deeper one, corresponding to a literal and a metaphorical reading respectively. The major themes addressed in this passage—the immortality of the soul, transmigration, rewards and punishments in the after-life, Hades, the kinship of all nature and anamnesis—have distinct meanings depending on whether we approach them with a Platonic or an Orphico-Pythagorean (...)

    The Transition From the Lower to the Higher Mysteries of Love in Plato’s Symposium.Cristina Ionescu - 2007 - Dialogue 46 (1):27-42.
    In the Symposium Socrates shows how Diotima initiated him into the mysteries of love in two stages. Yet, at first sight, the teachings offered at the two stages seem divergent and discontinuous. In this article I argue that we can understand the continuity between them if we regard Diotima’s notions of spiritual pregnancy and birth-giving as metaphors suggesting that the metaphysical horizon looming in the background of her teaching is that of Plato’s theory of recollection.Socrate explique dans le Banquet comment (...)

    Plato’s Understanding of Pleasure in the Philebus.Cristina Ionescu - 2008 - Journal of Philosophical Research 33:1-18.
    Plato’s definition of pleasure as perceptible replenishment of a lack has been criticized as too narrow and incapable of accounting for some of the corporeal and all the non-corporeal pleasures. Plato’s suggested reply, based on objective standards in relation to which we are to estimate the reality and degree of replenishment we experience, seems to give rise to another difficulty, concerning the legitimate diversity of our natural inclinations and tastes. I argue that Plato’sdefinition of pleasure makes perfect sense when integrated (...)

    Colloquium 1 The Place of Pleasure and Knowledge in the Fourfold Ontological Model of Plato’s Philebus.Cristina Ionescu - 2015 - Proceedings of the Boston Area Colloquium of Ancient Philosophy 30 (1):1-32.
    Plato’s Philebus develops an ontological model in four terms to account for “all the things that are now in the all”. The fourfold model consists of Limit, the Unlimited, the Mixture of these two, and the Cause of the mixture. Traditional interpretations place pleasure in the class of the Unlimited and knowledge either in that of Limit or, sometimes, in that of the Cause of mixtures. The aim of my paper is twofold: it challenges the received interpretation and defends instead (...)

    Elenchus, Recollection, and the Method of Hypothesis in the Meno.Cristina Ionescu - 2017 - Plato Journal: The Journal of the International Plato Society 17:9-29.
    The Meno is often interpreted as an illustration of Plato’s decision to replace elenchus with recollection and the method of hypothesis. My paper challenges this view and defends instead two theses: that far from replacing elenchus, the method of hypothesis incorporates and uses elenctic arguments in order to test and build its own steps; and that recollection is not a method of search on a par with elenchus and the method of hypothesis, but is rather primarily a theory that accounts (...)

    Recollection and the Method of Collection and Division in the Phaedrus.Cristina Ionescu - 2012 - Journal of Philosophical Research 37:1-24.
    When dealing with the metaphysical and epistemological implications of the Phaedrus, scholars have had the tendency to focus either on recollection or on discerning the methodological articulations of dialectical rhetoric. The present paper explores the relation between recollection and the dialectical method, and argues that recollection and the method of collection and division are complementary aspects of dialectical investigation, the method providing a strategy of reasoning, while the theory of recollection provides the metaphysical horizon within which collection and division can (...)
