Reading Plato by Thomas A. Szlezak
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Taking the critique of writing in the Phaedrus as a starting point - where Socrates argues that a book cannot choose its reader nor can it defend itself against misinterpretation - Reading Plato offers solutions to the problems of interpreting the Platonic dialogues. Thomas A. Szlezak persuasively and eruditely argues that the dialogues are designed to stimulate philosophical inquiry and to elevate philosophy to the realm of oral dialectic. Reading Plato offers a concise and illuminating insight into the complexities and difficulties of the Platonic dialogues which will be invaluable to any student of Plato's philosophy.
