Beschreibung

Informationen zum Autor Plato (428/427 or 424/423 - 348/347 BC) was an Athenian philosopher during the Classical period in Ancient Greece, founder of the Platonist school of thought, and the Academy, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. He is widely considered the pivotal figure in the history of Ancient Greek and Western philosophy, along with his teacher, Socrates, and his most famous student, Aristotle.[a] Plato has also often been cited as one of the founders of Western religion and spirituality.[4] The so-called Neoplatonism of philosophers like Plotinus and Porphyry influenced Saint Augustine and thus Christianity. Alfred North Whitehead once noted: "the safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato."[5] Plato was the innovator of the written dialogue and dialectic forms in philosophy. Plato is also considered the founder of Western political philosophy. His most famous contribution is the theory of Forms known by pure reason, in which Plato presents a solution to the problem of universals known as Platonism (also ambiguously called either Platonic realism or Platonic idealism). He is also the namesake of Platonic love and the Platonic solids. His own most decisive philosophical influences are usually thought to have been along with Socrates, the pre-Socratics Pythagoras, Heraclitus and Parmenides, although few of his predecessors' works remain extant and much of what we know about these figures today derives from Plato himself. Unlike the work of nearly all of his contemporaries, Plato's entire body of work is believed to have survived intact for over 2,400 years.[7] Although their popularity has fluctuated over the years, the works of Plato have never been without readers since the time they were written Klappentext Protagoras is a lively and often humorous look at virtue, knowledge, and the best means of acquiring them. Ostensibly a debate between Socrates and a sophist opponent over the education of a young man, the dialogue also concerns the nature of the contest itself. As told in retrospect by a somewhat frustrated Socrates, he is asked by Hippocrates to broker an introduction to Protagoras, a famous sophist with whom the young man wants to study. Socrates then begins a public debate with Protagoras in order to see what the sophist has to teach. The two men examine the nature of virtue - whether it can be taught, and whether all virtues are connected - but end up in conflict over their styles of discourse. Plato contrasts the crowd-pleasing oratory of Protagoras with the difficult and unglamorous questioning used by Socrates. The multiple layers of conflict and discussion make Protagorus one of Plato's most dramatically satisfying works, and an excellent starting point for those new to his philosophy....

Klappentext

Protagoras is a lively and often humorous look at virtue, knowledge, and the best means of acquiring them.

Ostensibly a debate between Socrates and a sophist opponent over the education of a young man, the dialogue also concerns the nature of the contest itself. As told in retrospect by a somewhat frustrated Socrates, he is asked by Hippocrates to broker an introduction to Protagoras, a famous sophist with whom the young man wants to study. Socrates then begins a public debate with Protagoras in order to see what the sophist has to teach. The two men examine the nature of virtue - whether it can be taught, and whether all virtues are connected - but end up in conflict over their styles of discourse. Plato contrasts the crowd-pleasing oratory of Protagoras with the difficult and unglamorous questioning used by Socrates.

The multiple layers of conflict and discussion make Protagorus one of Plato's most dramatically satisfying works, and an excellent starting point for those new to his philosophy.
