Socrates and legal obligation by Reginald E Allen( Book )

21 editions published between 1980 and 2005 in English and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Socrates and Legal Obligation was first published in 1981. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Charged with "impiety" and sentenced to death under the law of Athens, Socrates did not try to disprove the charges or to escape death, but rather held to a different kind of rhetoric, aiming not at persuasion but at truth. In Socrates and Legal Obligation, R.E. Allen contends that Plato's works on Socrates' acceptance of death-the Apology and the Crito - should be considered together and as such constitute a profound treatment of law and of obligation to law. Allen's study of Socrates' thought on these vital issues is accompanied by his own translations of the Apology and the Crito

Studies in Plato's metaphysics by Reginald E Allen( Book )

45 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Did Plato abandon, or modify, the 'Theory of Forms' in later life? In the 'Phaedo', 'Symposium' and 'Republic' it is 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 'Parmenides' marks a turning point in his thought

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( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 20 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
