about this item

The August 2012 meeting of the International Plato Society was held in Brazil, the first time in Latin America, and the 25 selected papers cover Plato's literary style, other genres and traditions, and Plato's characters. Among the topics are the myth of the winged chariot in the Phaedrus as a vehicle for philosophical thinking, detailed completeness and pleasure of the narrative: the narrative tradition and Plato, allusive art in Plato's Incipit to Book X of the Republic, the style of medical writing in the speech of Eryximachus: imitation and contamination, and the role of Diotima in the Symposium: the dialogue and its double.
