  1. Plato's Sophist.William S. Cobb - 1990 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    Plato's Sophist provides a careful translation of the Sophist, one of Plato's most complex and difficult dialogues, and includes materials designed to facilitate its usefulness as a text in college courses. The translation employs a minimum of interpretative paraphrasing while being presented in clear, readable English. Special attention has been given to consistency in translating key Greek terms. The book presents a special list of these terms and discusses them in the endnotes. The result is a translation that enables the (...)

  2. The Religious and the Just in Plato’s Euthyphro.William S. Cobb - 1985 - Ancient Philosophy 5 (1):41-46.
    This is an analysis of the argument of the "euthyphro" that takes the dialogue form seriously. i contend that plato does "not" present socrates as defending a view incompatible with his claim in the "protagoras" that the religious ("pious") and the just are the same. the suggestion that the religious is only part of the just must be attributed to "euthyphro". i also argue that socrates does not reject the definition of the religious as what the gods love.

    Fear of Diversity: The Birth of Political Science in Ancient Greek Thought.William S. Cobb - 1994 - Review of Metaphysics 48 (1):162-163.
    In this overview of ancient Greek thought Saxonhouse argues that Aristotle invents political science by recognizing the necessity and virtue of diversity in the polis. His predecessors are driven by their fear of diversity to demand an extreme unity that is ultimately destructive of life because it denies or seeks to eliminate the multiplicity that characterizes the world we encounter through our senses, which is the world where the polis must exist. She examines this fear of diversity from its roots (...)

    Rationality and Theistic Belief: An Essay on Reformed Epistemology.William S. Cobb - 1995 - Review of Metaphysics 48 (3):670-671.
    This book is a thorough study of an issue that is particularly associated with the work of William P. Alston and Alvin Plantinga, namely, the claim that belief in the existence of God is in important ways on a par with belief in the existence of ordinary parts of the world, such as trees and other people. The inference is that since the latter is recognized as epistemologically acceptable, that is, "rational," so should the former be. McLeod develops his own (...)

    Socratic Rationalism and Political Philosophy: An Interpretation of Plato's Phaedo.William S. Cobb - 1994 - Review of Metaphysics 48 (2):428-429.
    Stern uses a very thorough analysis of Plato's Phaedo as a means of attacking the traditional understanding of the Platonic-Socratic view of both the method and the results of philosophy that is found in the middle dialogues. Stern means by "political philosophy" the study of human affairs in general, and he sees Socrates' study of human affairs as described in the Phaedo as involving a type of rationalism that does not rest on a dogmatic assertion about the existence of a (...)

  15. The Symposium and the Phaedrus: Plato's Erotic Dialogues.William S. Cobb (ed.) - 1993 - State University of New York Press.
    The Symposium and the Phaedrus are combined here because of their shared theme: a reflection on the nature of erotic love, the love that begins with sexual desire but can transcend that origin and reach even the heights of religious ecstasy. This reflection is carried out explicitly in the speeches and conversations in the dialogues, and implicitly in the dramatic depiction of actions and characters. Thus, the two dialogues deal with a theme of enduring interest and are interesting for both (...)
