Chappell, Timothy.

Reading Plato's Theaetetus.

Translation and commentary.
2005. 246 S. 48,50 Euro. 15,5 x 23 cm. Hardcover. 978-3-89665-315-4.
(International Plato Studies Bd. 20)

Prospekt (Druckversion/PDF) / Information leaflet (Print version/PDF)


Timothy Chappell's Reading Plato's Theaetetus offers a complete new translation of Plato's most famous dialogue on knowledge, together with an extended philosophical commentary. Timothy Chappell defends an original form of the Unitarian reading of the dialogue, arguing that Plato's aim in this enigmatic work is to show how little we can do towards defining or understanding knowledge, if we try to do it on an empiricist or naturalist basis.

The book also contains a wealth of argument on subsidiary topics–the language of the dialogue, its date and place in Plato's development, and its relation to earlier and later Greek thought in general.


Timothy Chappell is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Dundee.
