9780199245598: Plato on Knowledge and Forms: Selected Essays

Plato on Knowledge and Forms brings together a set of connected essays by Gail Fine, in her main area of research since the late 1970s: Plato's metaphysics and epistemology. She discusses central issues in Plato's metaphysics and epistemology, issues concerning the nature and extent of knowledge, and its relation to perception, sensibles, and forms; and issues concerning the nature of forms, such as whether they are universals or particulars, separate or immanent, and whether they are causes. A specially written introduction draws together the themes of the volume, which will reward the attention of anyone interested in Plato or in ancient metaphysics and epistemology.

Review:


"Professor Gail Fine has investigated these yoked epistemological and metaphysical dimensions of Forms with care, insight, and tenacity for over a quarter century...This welcome anthology collects together fifteen of her published papers [plus] a full, clear, and mildly polemical Introduction. Fine offers her texts, her critics, and her readers alike the courtesty of a welcome and uncommon intellectual candor." --Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Plato on Knowledge and Forms brings together a set of connected essays by Fine, written over a period of twenty-five years, on Plato s metaphysics and epistemology. It also includes a previously unpublished introductory essay, which pulls together connected threads, responds to some criticisms of the original essays, and revises or modifies some of her earlier views. The essays cover a broad range of Plato s works, from the Meno to the Theaetetus. Fine discusses his views on the nature of knowledge; on how knowledge differs from belief and from true belief; and on the extent of knowledge (whether, for example, knowledge is restricted to forms ). She also asks whether forms are particulars and/or universals; whether they are separate and/or immanent; and whether they are causes. Several essays consider connections between Plato s metaphysics and epistemology; and some essays compare Plato s metaphysics with Aristotle s. She also addresses some issues in philosophy of language, such as Plato s views on the correctness of names in the Cratylus. The result is a synoptic view of some of Plato s most basic and enduring ideas about knowledge and reality. This volume showcases a quarter century of work by one of the most respected scholars in this field, and will reward the attention of anyone interested in Plato or in ancient metaphysics and epistemology.
