In Plato's Dream of Sophistry, Richard Marback shows that Plato's vision was remarkably accurate. Against histories of rhetoric that described Plato's influence mainly in terms of his overarching dominance, Marback argues that Plato's lasting influence results not from the force of the dialogues themselves but from continued investments in arguing about the dialogues.

Philip Kingsley was born privileged. He was intelligent and charismatic. He could have led a life of luxury but he saw the coming crisis and wanted to save us from ourselves. Do you know what's over the horizon? The future is tomorrow. A crisis is coming and we have no plan. We have no leader. Technology is swift and thorough, leaving chaos in its wake. Robots are taking our jobs. They are making our products, crunching our numbers, driving our trucks, flipping our burgers. A time of revolution is coming. A technological revolution, an economic revolution, a robotic revolution, an employment revolution. A bloody revolution if we aren't careful. The time of the employment singularity is beginning and what we do next determines if we thrive or die. People without work are dried out kindling stacking up on the floor of the forest of capitalism. Technological breakthroughs strike like lightning and the mighty winds of change are swirling through the world. We are but campers hoping for rain. Who will lead us to make the right decisions. Can we hope for the right outcome? One man will rise up to try and save the world but humanity's greed and corruption stand between Armageddon and Utopia. The future is bleak and the odds are long but Philip Kingsley is determined, charismatic, intelligent, charming, rich, flawed, and with all the right connections. Is he mankind's last hope or is he a pawn being used to slap chains on the unsuspecting masses? Is he a savior or a tyrant? --Will capitalism be replaced? --Are there other economic models for when our system breaks? --What will we do for work? For income? --Would it even be feasible to create a resource based economy or a universal basic income when people don't want to fund food stamps for hungry children? --Are we capable of evolution before revolution? Could the right leader bring us to the technological promised land just beyond the chaos of tomorrow? Plato said, "Until philosophers are kings, or the kings and princes of this world have the spirit and power of philosophy, and political greatness and wisdom meet in one, and those commoner natures who pursue either to the exclusion of the other are compelled to stand aside, cities will never have rest from their evils." What will we do in the coming crisis of the employment singularity? Will humankind find rest from the coming evils?

Here is the question: what constitutes a good explanation of phenomena? Whereas true being (forms) can be known through dialectic, concrete phenomena can only be explained. An explanation is verisimilar of dialectical knowledge as concrete things are images of eternal ones. Ashbaugh shows how Plato subtly develops the notion of imaging and explaining, accounting for how physical things can be different from forms and how they are connected to forms.

Plato, often cited as a founding father of Western philosophy, set out ideas in the Republic regarding the nature of justice, order, and the character of the just individual, that endure into the modern day. The Routledge Guidebook to Plato’s Republic introduces the major themes in Plato’s great book and acts as a companion for reading the work, examining: The context of Plato’s work and the background to his writing Each separate part of the text in relation to its goals, meanings and impact The reception the book received when first seen by the world The relevance of Plato’s work to modern philosophy, its legacy and influence. With further reading included throughout, this text follows Plato’s original work closely, making it essential reading for all students of philosophy, and all those wishing to get to grips with this classic work.

Knowledge, from Plato onwards, has been considered in relation to justified belief. Current debate has centred around the nature of the justification and whether justified belief can be considered an internal or extenal matter. Epistemological internalists argue that the subject must be able to reflect upon a belief to complete the process of justification. The externalists, on the other hand, claim that it is only necessary to consider whether the belief is reliably formed, and argue that the ability to know by reflection is not required for a justified belief. In the historical section of this book the three most important epistemologists, Plato, Descartes and Hume, as well as the ancient epistemologies of the stoics, Academics and Pyrhonians, are considered. In reconsidering the history of epistemology the author is led to argue against hte view that internalism is historically dominant. His critique of internalism is then developed into a sustained argument against many of its forms, and he goes onto defend an externalist, reliabilist epistemology.

"The Material and Sources of Plato's Dream," Phronesis, 15 (1970): 101-122. "The Philosophical Sense of Theaetetus' Mathematics," Isis, 69 (1978): 489-513.

“Desjardins’ conclusion, that the Theaetetus really does point to a particular theory of knowledge, certainly will be controversial, since for many people the idea that the Theaetetus fails to define knowledge is the cornerstone of their interpretation of Plato’s later philosophical thought. But whatever one thinks about the conclusion, it must be agreed that the manner in which it is defended is intrinsically important. Desjardins starts from the unassailable premise that the dialogues are internally unified, and that everything in the dialogues is there for a reason. Her method, then, is to show how some of the features of the dialogue that are usually not taken very seriously actually are very important. Of course, she is not the only scholar taking this sort of tack, but what she makes of the various elements of the Theaetetus is a most impressive construction.

Both a Popper biography and an autobiography, Agassi's "A Philosopher's Apprentice" tells the riveting story of his intellectual formation in 1950s London, a young brilliant philosopher struggling with an intellectual giant - father, mentor, and rival, all at the same time. His subsequent rebellion and declaration of independence leads to a painful break, never to be completely healed. No other writer has Agassi's psychological insight into Popper, and no other book captures like this one the intellectual excitement around the Popper circle in the 1950s and the struggles of the 1960s and 1970s - personal, academic, political, all important philosophically. Agassi's Popper - whether one agrees with it or not - is an enormous contribution to scholarship. This second revised edition includes also Popper's and Agassi's last correspondence and, in a postscript it shows Agassi leafing through Popper's archives, reaching a sort of reconciliation, an appropriate ending to the drama. A must read. Malachi Hacohen, Duke University

Something between a tale and a polemic, these "fables of reason" are feats of narrative compression and contain much of Voltaire's best and funniest writing. From ribald tales of adultery to conversations between cosmic travellers, the stories in this collection pose moral, philosophical and social questions. Reader and protagonist alike find their assumptions challenged as Voltaire mingles rationality and fantasy.
