Gail Fine's On Ideas is a study of Book I of Aristotle's short essay Peri Idēon, in which Aristotle presents a systematic account of a series of five arguments for the existence of Platonic forms along with a series of objections to each of these arguments. Fine's aim in this book is to explore these arguments and the objections that Aristotle makes with a view to determining the extent Author: Gail Fine.

    Socrates: I have not a good memory, Meno, and therefore I cannot now tell what I thought of him at the time. And I dare say that he did know, and that you know what he said: please, therefore, to remind me of what he said; or, if you would rather, tell me your own view; for I suspect that you and he think much alike.   Rhodes’ and Planinc’s analyses of the Eleatic dialogues indicate clearly the serious consequences of this type of thinking for politics and philosophy. It would be interesting to read their assessments of the form this thinking has assumed in our current dispensation in light of their readings of Plato’s original critique.

    This book takes as its starting point Plato's incorporation of specific genres of poetry and rhetoric into his dialogues. The author argues that Plato's 'dialogues' with traditional genres are part and parcel of his effort to define 'philosophy'. Before Plato, 'philosophy' designated 'intellectual cultivation' in the broadest sense. the relation of the Sophist to other dialogues. I. The Sophist in Plato is the master of the art of illusion; the charlatan, the foreigner, the prince of esprits-faux, the hireling who is not a teacher, and who, from whatever point of view he is regarded, is the opposite of the true teacher. He is the 'evil one,' the ideal.
