  1. Thrasymachus in Plato's Politeia I.Ivor Ludlam - 2011 - Maynooth Philosophical Papers (6):18-44.
    This is an earlier version of a chapter from my book "Plato's Republic as a Philosophical Drama on Doing Well" (2014). The book analyses Plato’s Politeia (= Republic) as a philosophical drama in which the participants turn out to be models of various types of psychic constitution, and nothing is said by them which may be considered to be an opinion of Plato himself (with all that that entails for Platonism). The debate in Book I between Socrates and Thrasymachus serves (...)

  2. Hippias Major: An Interpretation.Ivor Ludlam - 1991 - F. Steiner.
    This strange dialogue becomes intelligible when Socrates is treated as a model of the good man who appears to the Many to be bad talking with a Hippias who is a model of the bad man who appears to the Many to be good. The good and apparently good are dramatized through these models. The good is revealed to be the fitting, while the fine/beautiful (kalon) is revealed to be the apparently fitting (hence the many confusions between the two concepts). (...)

    Two Long-Running Stoic Myths: A Centralized Orthodox Stoic School and Stoic Scholarchs.Ivor Ludlam - 2003 - Elenchos 24 (1):33-55.
    The reasons for assuming an established orthodox Stoic school with scholarchs are considered and refuted. The traditional line of Stoics is a diadochic device to link Panaetius, and later, Posidonius, back to Zeno of Citium, using a chain of teachers and pupils. These Stoics were independent teachers sharing a general worldview but differing to a greater or lesser extent in the details.

    Defining Terms in Aristotle's Topics: ΟΡΟΣ or ΟΡ⟨ΙΣΜ⟩ΟΣ?Ivor Ludlam - 2000 - Mnemosyne 53 (3):267-287.
    Many instances of "horismos" in Aristotle's Topics and Alexander's commentary have been altered to "horos" in the transmission of the texts. Philological and philosophical reasons are provided to substantiate this claim and to explain the phenomenon.

    Plato's Republic as a Philosophical Drama on Doing Well.Ivor Ludlam - 2014 - Lexington Books.
    The Republic is widely recognized to be Plato’s masterpiece, but for centuries it has been the subject of much debate. Is it about the ideal state, or the soul, or art, or education, or something else altogether? Interpretations have been many and various, for two main reasons: studies have tended to concentrate on parts of this very long dialogue to the exclusion of other parts; and some of the opinions expressed in the dialogue are routinely regarded as being those of (...)
