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

Stella Sandford: Plato and Sex, Wiley John + Sons,Aug 2010 ISBN: 9780745626413
What does the study of Plato's dialogues tell us about the modern meaning of 'sex' How can recent developments in the philosophy of sex and gender help us read these ancient texts anew Plato and Sex addresses these questions for the first time. Each chapter demonstrates how the modern reception of Plato's works in both mainstream and feminist philosophy and psychoanalytical theory has presupposed a 'natural-biological' conception of what sex might mean. Through a critical comparison between our current understanding of sex and Plato's notion of genos, Plato and Sex puts this presupposition into question. With its groundbreaking interpretations of the Republic, the Symposium and the Timaeus, this book opens up a new approach to sex as a philosophical concept. Including critical readings of the theories of sex and sexuation in Freud and Lacan, and relating such theories to Plato's writings, Plato and Sex both questions our assumptions about sex and explains how those assumptions have coloured our understanding of Plato. What results is not only an original reading of some of the most prominent aspects of Plato's philosophy, but a new attempt to think through the meaning of sex today.

Terence H. Irwin: Plato's Ethics, Oxford University Press,Jan 1995 ISBN: 9780195086454
This exceptional book examines and explains Plato's answer to the normative question, 'How ought we to live ' It discusses Plato's conception of the virtues; his views about the connection between the virtues and happiness; and the account of reason, desire, and motivation that underlies hisarguments about the virtues. Plato's answer to the epistemological question, 'How can we know how we ought to live ' is also discussed. His views on knowledge, belief, and inquiry, and his theory of Forms, are examined, insofar as they are relevant to his ethical view. Terence Irwin traces thedevelopment of Plato's moral philosophy, from the Socratic dialogues to its fullest exposition in the Republic. Plato's Ethics discusses Plato's reasons for abandoning or modifying some aspects of Socratic ethics, and for believing that he preserves Socrates' essential insights. A brief andselective discussion of the Statesmen, Philebus, and Laws is included. Replacing Irwin's earlier Plato's Moral Theory (Oxford, 1977), this book gives a clearer and fuller account of the main questions and discusses some recent controversies in the interpretation of Plato's ethics. It does notpresuppose any knowledge of Greek or any extensive knowledge of Plato.

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."
