    Plato's Erotic World: From Cosmic Origins to Human Death.Jill Gordon - 2012 - Cambridge, England: Cambridge University Press.
    Plato's entire fictive world is permeated with philosophical concern for Eros, well beyond the so-called erotic dialogues. Several metaphysical, epistemological and cosmological conversations - Timaeus, Cratylus, Parmenides, Theaetetus and Phaedo - demonstrate that Eros lies at the root of the human condition and that properly guided Eros is the essence of a life well lived. This book presents a holistic vision of Eros, beginning with the presence of Eros at the origin of the cosmos and the human soul, surveying four (...)

    Eros and Philosophical Seduction in Alcibiades I.Jill Gordon - 2003 - Ancient Philosophy 23 (1):11-30.
    This essay interprets Alcibiades I as representing Socrates' philosophical seduction of Alcibiades. Socrates and Alcibiades are both highly erotic characters, and Socrates attempts to provoke and then guide Alcibiades' erotic tendencies in philosophical directions. The erotic relationship between Socrates and Alcibiades, including Socrates' attraction to Alcibiades, is central to understanding the themes, which also appear in the dialogue, of self-knowledge, political ambition, self-care, divine versus human guidance, and corruption at the hands of the Athenians. Along the way, the essay responds (...)

    Meaning and Value in Medical School Curricula.Wendy Lipworth, Ian Kerridge, Miles Little, Jill Gordon & Pippa Markham - 2012 - Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice 18 (5):1027-1035.
    Rationale, aims and objectives: Bioethics and professionalism are standard subjects in medical training programmes, and these curricula reflect particular representations of meaning and practice. It is important that these curricula cohere with the actual concerns of practicing clinicians so that students are prepared for real-world practice. We aimed to identify ethical and professional concerns that do not appear to be adequately addressed in standard curricula by comparing ethics curricula with themes that emerged from a qualitative study of medical practitioners. Method: (...)

  6. Turning Toward Philosophy: Literary Device and Dramatic Structure in Plato's Dialogues.Jill Gordon - 1999 - Pennsylvania State University Press.
    Acknowledging the powerful impact that Plato's dialogues have had on readers, Jill Gordon shows how the literary techniques Plato used function philosophically to engage readers in doing philosophy and attracting them toward the philosophical life. The picture of philosophical activity emerging from the dialogues, as thus interpreted, is a complex process involving vision, insight, and emotion basic to the human condition rather than a resort to pure reason as an escape from it. Since the literary features of Plato's writing are (...)

    Black Bodies Matter: A Reading of Ta-Nahisis Coates's Between the World and Me.Jill Gordon - 2017 - Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal 38 (1):199-221.
    Some scholars read the black body as constructed by white consciousness or perceptions; Coates indicates, to the contrary, that violence against the black body and threats to black embodiment ground and make possible particular ideations of race and (white) American self-concepts. Coates takes an implicitly anti-Hegelian, anti-DuBoisian stance against any spirit or history that might redeem or affirm the black body as the grounding of black experience. Like repeated speech-acts, bodily violence is “world creating.” Although material treatment of bodies and (...)

  8. John Stuart Mill and the “Marketplace of Ideas”.Jill Gordon - 1997 - Social Theory and Practice 23 (2):235-249.
    The expression "the marketplace of ideas" is often used in reference to Mill's views on freedom of thought and speech in On Liberty, but the metaphor does not come from Mill's work, nor is it consistent with his position. A real marketplace of ideas would create what Mill warns us against: the prevalence of the views of the most powerful and/or the most numerous. From a U.S. perspective, I explore Mill's suggestion to "countenance and encourage" minority views, and I compare (...)

    Doctors on Status and Respect: A Qualitative Study. [REVIEW]Wendy Lipworth, Miles Little, Pippa Markham, Jill Gordon & Ian Kerridge - 2013 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 10 (2):205-217.
    While doctors generally enjoy considerable status, some believe that this is increasingly threatened by consumerism, managerialism, and competition from other health professions. Research into doctors’ perceptions of the changes occurring in medicine has provided some insights into how they perceive and respond to these changes but has generally failed to distinguish clearly between concerns about “status,” related to the entitlements associated with one’s position in a social hierarchy, and concerns about “respect,” related to being held in high regard for one’s (...)

    The Ethics of Entrepreneurial Philanthropy.Charles Harvey, Jillian Gordon & Mairi Maclean - forthcoming - Journal of Business Ethics:1-17.
    A salient if under researched feature of the new age of global inequalities is the rise to prominence of entrepreneurial philanthropy, the pursuit of transformational social goals through philanthropic investment in projects animated by entrepreneurial principles. Super-wealthy entrepreneurs in this way extend their suzerainty from the domain of the economic to the domains of the social and political. We explore the ethics and ethical implications of entrepreneurialphilanthropy through systematic comparison with what we call customaryphilanthropy, which preferences support for established institutions (...)

    Against Vlastos on Complex Irony.Jill Gordon - 1996 - Classical Quarterly 46 (1):131-137.

    Questioning Platonism: Continental Interpretations of Plato.Jill Gordon - 2006 - Review of Metaphysics 59 (3):647-648.
    For Plato scholars who work within the Anglo-American or analytic tradition, Hyland’s book provides an accessible exposition and a balanced assessment of major texts. So, if one is not familiar, for example, with what Heidegger or Derrida say about Plato’s dialogues, this is an excellent starting place. For scholars who already work in the “continental” tradition, Hyland’s book provides incisive criticism of the major texts and a constructive argument for why these figures’s interpretations of Plato are in tension with their (...)

    Eros in Plato’s Timaeus.Jill Gordon - 2005 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 9 (2):255-278.
    The Timaeus, a decidedly non-erotic dialogue, provides surprising philosophical insight into the role and importance of eros in human life. Contrary to manytraditional readings of the dialogue, the Timaeus indicates that eros is an original part of the disembodied soul as created by the demiurge, and as such, is part of the noetic or intelligent design of the cosmos. Timaeus reveals, furthermore, that eros is the moving force behind our desire to know first causes and the noetic world, that eros, (...)

    Why Didn’T Plato Just Write Arguments? The Role of Image-Making in the Dialogues.Jill Gordon - unknown
    Several of Plato's dialogues seem to question the moral and epistemic value of image-making. Yet Plato's own word-images are powerful and alluring. I reconsider a conception of "Platonic" metaphysics in which the visible is denigrated relative to the purely intelligible, and in which only the latter can be an avenue to philosophical enlightenment. Viewing the apparent criticisms of image-making in the context of Plato's own use of images, I argue that his use of images can and does lead to philosophical (...)

    The Death of Socrates and the Life of Philosophy: An Interpretation of Plato’s Phaedo.Jill Gordon - 1998 - Review of Metaphysics 52 (1):127-128.
    Ahrensdorf’s interpretation of the Phaedo leaves few stones unturned. While other scholars have pointed to the fallibility of Socrates’ “proofs” for the immortality of the soul, or have sought to distinguish the primary interlocutors, Simmias and Cebes, or have examined this dialogue’s vindication of the philosophical life, Ahrensdorf manages to pull all these issues together in a coherent, holistic reading of the Phaedo. The dialogue, he argues, presents Socrates’ views that the individual soul is not immortal and that our embodied (...)
