    Socrates and Thrasymachus.F. E. Sparshott - 1966 - The Monist 50 (3):421-459.
    The encounter between Socrates and Thrasymachus in Republic I is notoriously baffling. Most of what is said seems straightforward, and the issues at stake are ones of common concern, but the argument remains elusive. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the nature and grounds of this elusiveness, and to show that some of it can be dispelled by a sufficiently free-ranging exegesis that bears in mind the general character of Plato’s writing.

    Five Virtues in Plato and Artistotle.F. E. Sparshott - 1970 - The Monist 54 (1):40-65.
    Greek, like English, disposes of many “virtue words,” that is, words which serve partly to describe people and partly to say that they are in some respect praiseworthy: such words as ‘honest’, ‘brave’, megaloprepês, agkhinous. Partly because of their twofold use, and partly because of the complexity of the ways in which we distinguish in given areas between praiseworthy and neutral or even reprehensible things to do, it is hard to explain how any one of these words is used; and (...)

    Goodman on Expression.F. E. Sparshott - 1974 - The Monist 58 (2):187-202.
    Nelson Goodman equates expression with metaphorical exemplification. That is, a character C in a symbol system expresses a property P if three conditions are fulfilled: C has P ; C exemplifies P ; and C has P metaphorically. Two points are emphasized. The first point is that a character actually is what it metaphorically is: sad music really is sad, really does express sadness, just as loud music really is loud. The decision to apply to works of art language that (...)
