It has the charming style of his early writings, yet the arguments reveal a depth and sophistication which is new. In the Thecetetus, Plato is looking afresh at a problem to which, he now realises, he had earlier given an inadequate answer: the problem of the nature of knowledge. What Plato has to say on this question is of great interest and importance, not only to scholars of Plato, but even to philosophers with wholly contemporary interests. This book is a sustained philosophical analysis and critique of the Theaetetus. David Bostock provides a detailed examination of Plato's arguments and the issues that they raise. He adjudicates on rival interpretations of the text, and looks at the relations between the Theaetetus and other works of Plato. The book does not presuppose any knowledge of Greek. It is accessible to undergraduate philosophers, but also has much to offer the Platonic scholar. (Verlagstext). ISBN 9780198239307

Chappell, Timothy: Reading Plato's Theaetetus. Sankt Augustin: Academia Verlag, 2004. ISBN: 3896653156
Zustand: (Fast sehr) gut. - International Plato Studies. Published under the auspices of the International Plato Society. Series Editors: Luc Brisson (Paris), Christopher J. Rowe (Durham), Maria Isabel Santa Cruz (Buenos Aires), Mauro Tulli (Pisa), Thomas A. Szlezak (Tübingen). Volume 20. - "Timothy Chappell's "Reading Plato's Theaetetus" offers a complete new translation of Plato's most famous dialogue on knowledge, together with an extended philosophical commentary. Dr. Chappell defends an original form of the Unitarian reading of the dialogue, arguing that Plato's aim in this enigmatic work is to show how little we can do towards defining or understanding knowledge, if we try to do it on an empiricist or naturalist basis. The book also contains a wealth of argument on subsidiary topics - the language of the dialogue, its date and place in Plato's development, and its relaton to earlier and later Greek thought in general. - Dr. Chappell is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Dundee."

Oluwafemi Bolarfinwa: An Evaluation of Plato's Ideal State, GRIN Verlag GmbH,Dez 2011 ISBN: 9783656089582
Scholarly Essay from the year 2009 in the subject Politics - Political Theory and the History of Ideas Journal, grade: 1.0, University of Lagos, language: English, abstract: This work is an attempt to undertake an evaluation of Plato s ideal state. It argues the position that there is a need to realign Plato s ideal State to embrace the contemporary realities of today without negating its goal for a transformed society brought about by transformative leadership. Plato posit that the human race will have no respite from evils until those who are really philosophers acquire political power or until, through some divine dispensation, those who rule and have political authority in the cities become real philosophers. Plato came to the conclusion that all existing governments were bad and almost beyond redemption thus he theorized for an ideal State. The ideal state, according to Plato, is composed of three classes. The economic structure of the state is maintained by the merchant class. Security needs are met by the military class, and political leadership is provided by the philosopher-kings.In an attempt to re-evaluate Plato s ideal state, this work re-emphasized the relevance of transformative leadership as a necessary tool for societal good and transformation. It urges for the adoption of the relevant areas of Plato s concept of an ideal State anchored on the prevailing need and realities of the contemporary society.

George S. Claghorn: Aristotle's Criticism of Plato's 'Timaeus' Springer,19540101 ISBN: 9789401181907
The purpose of this study is to determine Aristotle's attitude toward the content and method of Plato's natural science. Plato and Aristotle have often been regarded as on opposite sides of a philosophic 'Great Divide'. On the other hand, those who have found that the two men were in agreement have sometimes mentioned only scattered instances of that agreement. There is need for a new comparison of the two philosopher- one which is limited in scope, based on the primary texts, and which is systematic and thorough in method. If successful, such a comparison would bring into sharp focus one phase of Aristotle's comments on Plato. Our attempt to meet this need is Aristotle's Criticism of Plato's TIMAEUS. In pursuing this study, it has been necessary to reject a number of uncritically-accepted interpre tations of the Timaeus. Contrary to the view of many, we have concluded that Aristotle largely agreed with Plato, both in the principles and presuppositions of his natural science. A number of implications stem from this study. There is, for example, the oft-questioned manner in which Aristotle treated Plato's philosophy. In the great majority of instances, Aristotle stands forth as a reliable reporter and a skilled critic. Moreover, the study sheds light on that ancient riddle: whether Plato and Aristotle are basically akin or at odds in their general philosophies.
