How did Socrates and Plato know that our planet is shaped like a ball? How were they aware that the earth has twelve tectonic plates? Were the Persians conquered at the naval battle of Salamis thanks to missiles launched from the nearby Thriasion Plain? How can Theocritus’s accurate knowledge of the American continent and Plutarch’s awareness of the Sargasso Sea be explained? Who was the real victor of the Trojan War, the Greeks or the Trojans? Can the aftermath of that legendary war in Anatolia be regarded as proof that the Greeks were conquered by the Trojans and not vice-versa?

Plato-Nietzsche: Philosophy the Other Way

Author: 

Dixsaut, Monique

Credentials: 

Professor Emerita at the University of Paris I. Translator: Kenneth Quandt, Ph.D. in Classics, University of California, Berkeley

The "PHILOSOPHY THE OTHER WAY" uncovers in the works of Plato and Nietzsche not some royal road to truth but rather the intensity of their love and commitment to the life of thought, whatever it discovers and wherever it might lead. Plato explored this in his ubiquitous absence from the adventures of thought depicted in his Dialogues. Nietzsche followed suit with his unrelenting presence as the grim and forceful conscience behind all the masks through which he spoke in his chaotic oeuvre.

Using technical discussion, definition and example, Dr Ellis discusses the art and craft of literary criticism and uses a variety of essay forms to discuss the critical impulse.
