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

44 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 892 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

Socrates and legal obligation by Reginald E Allen( Book )

21 editions published between 1980 and 2005 in English and held by 869 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

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

29 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The republic by Plato( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 500 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
Symposium by Plato( Book )

7 editions published between 1984 and 1991 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A master piece of dramatic dialogue, Plato has few rivals, and in The Symposium he is at his most incisive and entertaining
Plato's Parmenides by Plato( Book )

16 editions published between 1900 and 1997 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work presents an illuminating new translation of the dialogue together with an extensive introduction and running commentary, giving a unified explanation of the Parmenides and integrating it firmly within the context of Plato's metaphysics and methodology." "Scolnicov shows that in the Parmenides Plato addresses the most serious challenge to his own philosophy: the monism of Parmenides and the Eleatics. In addition to providing a serious rebuttal to Parmenides, Plato here reformulates his own theory of forms and participation, arguments that are central to the whole of Platonic thought, and provides these concepts with a rigorous logical and philosophical foundation. In Scolnicov's analysis, the Parmenides emerges as an extension of ideas from Plato's middle dialogues and as an opening to the later dialogues." "This translation follows the Greek closely, and the commentary affords the Greekless reader a clear understanding of how Scolnicov's interpretation emerges from the text. This volume will provide a valuable introduction and framework for understanding a dialogue that continues to generate lively discussion today."--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
