about

In this study, Levin explores Plato's engagement with the Greek literary tradition in his treatment of key linguistic issues. This investigation, conjoined with a new interpretation of the Republic's familiar critique of poets, supports the view that Plato's work represents a valuableprecedent for contemporary reflections on ways in which philosophy might benefit from appeals to literature.
Susan B. Levin is at Smith College.

"The idea behind Levin's book is a welcome addition to a growing trend in Platonic studies of taking seriously Plato's philosophical affair with language and literature."--Ancient Philosophy
