Reviews

"Scolnicov's aim is to provide a new translation of Plato's Parmenides, with a commentary designed to show that the arguments of the second half of the dialogue, whose purpose has for long been a matter of scholarly dispute, make sense as an attempt to establish the necessary logical and epistemological conditions for Plato's own theory of forms and participation. In particular, Scolnicov attempts to show that the otherwise bewildering concatenation of arguments and hypotheses answers to a style of argument which can be paralleled from other dialogues."
"An immensely clear and interesting introduction and way into the Parmenides."
