    Socratic Definition: Real or Nominal?Jeffrey Gold - 1984 - Philosophy Research Archives 10:573-588.
    In Plato’s early dialogues, Socrates frequently asks questions of the form “What is X?” seeking definitions of the substitution instances of X (e.g., Justice, Piety, and Courage). In attempting to elucidate Socratic definition, a number of interpreters have invoked a distinction between real and nominal definition (the distinction between the definition of a thing and the definition of a word. In using that distinction, several interpreters have pointed out that, when Socrates asked his “What is X” question (e.g., “What is (...)

  3. Plato in the Light of Yoga.Jeffrey Gold - 1996 - Philosophy East and West 46 (1):17-32.
    In this essay, it is proposed that the dialogues of Plato be interpreted through the lens of Yoga philosophy. No historical claims are made alleging transmission of ideas from India to Greece. It is claimed, however, that seeing Plato's thought through the categories of Yoga is both a neglected approach and an illuminating one.

    The Ambiguity of 'Name' in Plato's 'Cratylus'.Jeffrey B. Gold - 1978 - Philosophical Studies 34 (3):223 - 251.
    In the "cratylus", Plato presents two theories about the correctness of names, I.E., Names are correct by nature and names are correct by convention. In this paper, I argue that plato holds both views because he recognizes that the word 'name' is ambiguous as between type and token. Name tokens (individual strings of marks and noises) are conventional for plato. But name types (the role played by the tokens or the concept expressed by the tokens) are not conventional for plato.

    Socratic Definition: Real or Nominal?Jeffrey Gold - 1984 - Philosophy Research Archives 10:573-588.
    In Plato’s early dialogues, Socrates frequently asks questions of the form “What is X?” seeking definitions of the substitution instances of X. In attempting to elucidate Socratic definition, a number of interpreters have invoked a distinction between real and nominal definition, he was not seeking a nominal definition, but rather a real definition. My purpose in this paper is to argue that the preceding interpretation of Socratic thought is mistaken, i.e., I shall argue that there is no real/nominal distinction to (...)
