Cambridge University Press, 1990. 1st paperback edition. XIII,293p. Paperback. spine slightly stained. Corner cut from title page. Series: Cambridge Classical Studies. 'Listening to the cicadas' who provide the background to the conversation in the 'Phaedrus' is something which Plato - according to F. - wishes us to do as readers; that is, we are to pay attention not merely to the surface meaning of the dialogue but to the sounds and movements beneath it. Plato's art, like other arts (as Socrates describes them), cannot communicate itself by means of explicit statement alone, but also depends on example. That art is the art of philosophy; and that itself is the subject of the 'Phaedrus'. Plato contrasts it with the supposed art of rhetoric; the latter is exclusively concerned with what can be formulated in terms of expressed principles, while philosophy is also concerned with the limitations of its own rule-governed techniques. (.) This is a sophisticated and challenging book, which in many ways sets new standards for a treatment of Plato as ironist and as literary artist, not least in its scrupulous attention to the detail of the text.' (C.J. ROWE in The Classical Review (New Series), 1988, pp.223-25). Antiquarian. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 43084
