Transcription

1 PLATO AND THE DIVIDED SELF Plato s account of the tripartite soul is a memorable feature of dialogues like the Republic, Phaedrus, andtimaeus:it is one of his most famous and influential yet least understood theories. It presents human nature as both essentially multiple and diverse, and yet somehow also one, divided into a fully human rational part, a lion-like spirited part and an appetitive part likened to a many-headed beast. How these parts interact, how exactly each shapes our agency and how they are affected by phenomena like erôs and education is complicated and controversial. The essays in this book investigate how the theory evolves over the whole of Plato s work, including the Republic, Phaedrus, andtimaeus, and how it was developed further by important Platonists such as Galen, Plutarch, and Plotinus. They will be of interest to a wide audience in philosophy and classics. rachel barney holds the Canada Research Chair in Classical Philosophy at the University of Toronto. She is the author of Names and Nature in Plato s Cratylus (2001). tad brennan is Professor of Philosophy and Classics at Cornell University s Sage School of Philosophy. His books include Ethics and Epistemology in Sextus Empiricus (1999), The Stoic Life (2005) and Simplicius on Epictetus, Volumes 1 and 2 (2002), translated with Charles Brittain. charles brittain is Professor of Classics and Philosophy at Cornell University. His books include Philo of Larissa: The Last of the Academic Sceptics (2001) and Cicero: On Academic Scepticism (2006).
