Plato's 'Euthyphro' and earlier theory of Forms by Reginald E Allen( Book )

28 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato's Euthyphro is important because it gives an excellent example of Socratic dialogue in operation and of the connection of that dialectic with Plato's earlier theory of Forms. Professor Allen's edition of the dialogue provides a translation with interspersed commentary, aimed both at helping the reader who does not have Greek and also elucidating the discussion of the earlier Theory of Forms which follows. The author argues that there is a theory of Forms in the Euthyphro and in other early Platonic dialogues and that this theory is the foundation of Socratic dialogue
The republic by Plato( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edition, intended for the student and general reader, is accompanied by Allen's notes and introduction. The Republic is, of course, many things: metaphysics and epistemology, moral psychology and ethics, educational theory and aesthetics, and poetry and eschatology. In his introduction, Allen takes up its threshold question - the political - and argues that its particular formulation by Plato had a direct and profound influence on the Founding Fathers and the development of American constitutional law."--Jacket

Studies in Plato's Metaphysics (RLE: Plato) by Reginald E Allen( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Did Plato abandon, or sharply modify, the Theory of Forms in later life? In the Phaedo, Symposium, and Republic it is generally agreed that Plato held that universals exist. But in Parmenides, he subjected that theory to criticism. If the criticism were valid, and Plato knew so, then the Parmenides marks a turning point in his thought. If, however, Plato became aware that there are radical differences in the logical behaviour of concepts, and the later dialogues are a record of his attempt to analyse those differences, then Plato's thought can be said to have moved in a new and vitally importa
