    Leaving Plato’s Cave.Patrick Lee Miller - 2016 - American Association of Philosophy Teachers Studies in Pedagogy 2:94-116.
    In Republic, Plato presents a pedagogy whose crucial component is the conversion of the student’s soul. This is clearest in the Allegory of the Cave, where the prisoner begins her liberation by turning herself away from the images on the wall. Conversion is not something we professors typically seek to provoke in a philosophy course, even when we teach Plato. But if this were our goal, what could we do to achieve it within the limits of the modern university? I (...)

    Truth, Trump, Tyranny: Plato and the Sophists in an Era of ‘Alternative Facts’.Patrick Lee Miller - 2018 - In Angel Jaramillo Torres & Marc Benjamin Sable (eds.), Trump and Political Philosophy: Leadership, Statesmanship, and Tyranny. Springer Verlag. pp. 17-32.
    There are five attitudes to truth: that of the philosopher, the truth-teller, the liar, the sophist, and the tyrant. After discussing the two most famous Greek Sophists, Gorgias and Protagoras, this essay argues that Trump’s attitude to truth while campaigning was that of a sophist: someone who is indifferent to the truth, using words only to acquire money, fame, and power. When he became president, however, his attitude changed to that of the tyrant described by Plato: someone who uses power (...)
