  1. The Nicomachean Ethics.Lesley Brown (ed.) - 2009 - Oxford University Press.
    In the Nicomachean Ethics Aristotle examines the nature of happiness, which he defines as a specially good kind of life.

This new edition features a revised translation and valuable new introduction and notes.

    Recollection and Experience.Lesley Brown & Dominic Scott - 1995 - Philosophical Review 106 (2):270.
    Who were the true forerunners of the seventeenth-century theorists of innate ideas? Credit should go, not to Plato, despite the common label Platonist, but to the Stoics—or so this challenging new study claims.

    The Sophist on statements, predication, and falsehood.Lesley Brown - 2008 - In Gail Fine (ed.), The Oxford Handbook of Plato. Oxford University Press. pp. 437--62.
    Of the later dialogues of Plato, the Sophists stand out. This article highlights the concept of sophist as propounded by Plato. A didactic approach runs through the text. Socrates harps on the relation between sophist, philosopher and a statesman. Are they three different or they are the same. The basic idea that Plato wants to convey is, both features highlight some of the key enigmas of the dialogue: What is the relation between the outer and middle parts? How seriously are (...)

    Plato’s Theaetetus and the Hunting of the Proposition.Lesley Brown - 2021 - Rhizomata 8 (2):268-288.
    Section 1 contrasts the approaches to Plato of F.M.Cornford and Gilbert Ryle, two of the early twentieth century’s leading Plato interpreters. Then I trace and evaluate attempts to discern in Plato’s Theaetetus a recognition of the role of the proposition. Section 2 focuses on the hunting of the proposition in Socrates’ Dream in the Theaetetus. Ryle, inspired by Logical Atomism, argued that Plato there anticipated an insight about the difference between names and propositions that Russell credited to Wittgenstein. I rehearse (...)
