In this course we will read twelve of Plato's dialogues and will explore issues in Plato's ethics, psychology, epistemology, politics, and metaphysics. We will discuss methods of interpreting Plato's works as well as the implications of his critique of writing for understanding the dialogues. Finally, we will try to glimpse the meaning of Plato's philosophy in the light of history, taking into account the ancient setting of 4th century Athens and the 25 centuries of reading Plato that have passed since then.
