The Parmenides is arguably the pivotal text for understanding the Platonic corpus as a whole. Miller offers a new reading that takes as its key the closely constructed dramatic context and mimetic irony of the dialogue.

Editorial Reviews

“Miller's commentary is an impressive achievement, combining extensive scholarship with unusual sensitivity to Plato's nuances, both literary and discursive. Both for its imaginative interpretation of the larger issues, and its careful analysis of the details, it will be of great value to anyone with an interest in this bewildering dialogue.”

—Kenneth Dorter, Canadian Philosophical Reviews
