Description

Relativism, the position that things are for each as they seem to each, was first formulated by Protagoras in the fifth century BC. Mi-Kyoung Lee examines his challenge to the possibility of knowledge and truth, and how the three most important philosophers of the next generation, Plato, Aristotle, and Democritus, responded to it.

a balanced book, well-argued, rich in references to the secondary literature, with fresh and challenging readings of important issues in Greek epistemology
