Thirteen English-language papers, the proceedings of a conference held in Frankfurt in 2000, examine the culture of knowledge that surrounded Plato, contrasting it with Plato's idealised theory of knowledge. These specialised and annotated papers closely examine a number of Platonic texts including the Republic , Symposium and Gorgias . Extracts are in English translation.
