Socratic Ignorance and Platonic Knowledge in the Dialogues of Plato

I am going to argue that this late antique reading of Alcibiades I can help us make
sense of the dialogue. Let us, then, stipulate that Proclus's reading can be of use
to us; Socrates does play the role of the intellect to Alcibiades's soul. In fact, the ...

Argues that Socrates’s fundamental role in the dialogues is to guide us toward self-inquiry and self-knowledge. In this highly original and provocative book, Sara Ahbel-Rappe argues that the Platonic dialogues contain an esoteric Socrates who signifies a profound commitment to self-knowledge and whose appearances in the dialogues are meant to foster the practice of self-inquiry. According to Ahbel-Rappe, the elenchus, or inner examination, and the thesis that virtue is knowledge, are tools for a contemplative practice that teaches us how to investigate the mind and its objects directly. In other words, the Socratic persona of the dialogues represents wisdom, which is distinct from and serves as the larger space in which Platonic knowledge—ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics—is constructed. Ahbel-Rappe offers complete readings of the Apology, Charmides, Alcibiades I, Euthyphro, Lysis, Phaedrus, Theaetetus, and Parmenides, as well as parts of the Republic. Her interpretation challenges two common approaches to the figure of Socrates: the thesis that the dialogues represent an “early” Plato who later disavows his reliance on Socratic wisdom, and the thesis that Socratic ethics can best be expressed by the construct of eudaimonism or egoism.

In the dialogues of Plato, we find many references to the Corybantic rites. These were rites of initiation performed in honor of the goddess Rhea. However, as Carl Levenson argues in Socrates Among the Corybantes, Plato's dialogue entitled the Euthydemus contains more than a mere reference to the rites. Within the context of the Socratic dialogue itself, an actual performance of the rite (although veiled and distorted) takes place. If Levenson is correct in his thesis about the Euthydemus, then this dialogue is a valuable source for the history of religions since Corybantic rites were meant to be secret. Moreover, as these rites are Dionysiac, Plato is giving us a glimpse of the reality of Dionysiac ecstasy. Such an analysis is far from the usual reading of Euthydemus, which has been interpreted by academics solely as a satire on philosophical debate and has subsequently been consigned to a marginal place in Plato's canon. But here Plato is rejecting his abstract theories on form in favor of intimacy with the world -- of matter rather than of form. Levenson states that complete immersion in the material substrate of the world is what Plato discovered was at the heart of Dionysiac ecstasy -- an ecstasy which, as Plato said, could purify the soul of its ancient guilt.

Keith Quincy's new translation of Plato's dialogues makes these texts truly accessible and restores to them some of their original power to provoke and inspire. Presented in chronological order, rather than the usual thematic groups, Quincy's dialogues present a sense of the evolution of Plato's thought, making him more clearly a subject than he appears to be in other collections. Each dialogue is preceded by an introduction linking it to historical characters and events, and providing biographical sketches of the principals and their relationship to Socrates and Plato. challenge the prevailing view of Socrates as an almost saintly figure, and of Plato as his devotedly brilliant disciple. But there is good evidence for Quincy's view, and it gives a new and enlivening slant to these treasured texts.
