In the great majority of cases only one decision is possible, but there are instancessome of crucial importancewhere several courses can be adopted and where. The works of Plato commonly referred to as Socratic represent the sort of thing the historical Socrates was doing. Equally, if he specifies a sensible property like the gilded, he captures together things that are beautiful and things that are not. At the party depicted in the Symposium, greaA conflict after highschool each of the guests (including the poets Aristophanes and Agathon ) gives an encomium in praise of love. The Apology represents the speech that Socrates gave in his defense at his trial, and it gives an interpretation of Socrates career: he has been a gadfly, trying to awaken the noble horse of Athens to an awareness of virtue, and he is wisest.

Only when we realize that we dont know will we earnestly seek to fill-in our knowledge gap. Most acknowledges that these eight features are not completely uncontroversial, and that there are occasional exceptions; but applied flexibly, they allow us to establish a corpus of at least fourteen Platonic myths in the Phaedo, Gorgias, Protagoras, Meno, Phaedrus, Symposium, the Colour Out of Space Republic X, Statesman, Timaeus, Critias. The interlocutors in the Laches are generals. The Alcibiades depicts Socrates with the brilliant title character, whose meteoric career (before the date of composition but after the fictional date of the dialogue) contributed to the resentment against the older man. Whereas other thinkersand Plato himself in certain passagesused the term without any precise technical force, Plato in the course of his career came to devote specialized attention to these entities. Traditional Greek conceptions of the good life included the life of prosperity and the life of social position, in which case virtue would be the possession of wealth or nobility (and perhaps physical beauty). The ordinary predication Socrates is just is true, because the individual in question displays the property of being just. He better gauged his readers in his dialogues, many of which are accessible, entertaining, and inviting.

Dorion concludes that the Oracle story is not only a Platonic fiction, but also a Platonic myth, more specifically: a myth of origin. On the philosophical use of myth before Plato there are a number of good studies, notably Morgan 2000. The dialogues contain, in addition to Socrates and other authority figures, huge numbers of additional characters, some of whom act as representatives of certain classes of reader (as Glaucon may be a representative of talented and politically ambitious youth).
