  • Socrates: An Introduction To Plato's Analysis

    We can not be good, but we can perceive good. In the following of excellence we will all invariably miss the mark, because when dealing with “the good” the mark is infinitely small.

Therefore it can be argued that goal of a true Socratic definition is not finding out what a concept is, but…

    When talking about the ‘soul’, the non-physical essence of a human being, many philosophers will use different words to mean the same thing.

There are two general approaches to the idea of there…
