Ascent To The Good
The Reading Order Of Plato'S Dialogues From Symposium To Republic
Sobre o livro
This study reconsiders Plato's "Socratic" dialogues-Charmides, Laches, Lysis, Euthydemus, Gorgias, and Meno-as parts of an integrated curriculum. By privileging reading order over order of composition, a Platonic pedagogy teaching that the Idea of the Good is a greater object of philosophical concern than what benefits the self is spotlighted.
