(p.55) Introduction
The Brute Within

Hendrik Lorenz (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

In a much-discussed passage in Republic 10 (602c-603b), Plato appears to divide the rational soul-part into two distinct sub-parts. By considering the passage in its context, the chapter shows that appearance to be false. It closes by spelling out what can be learned about Plato’s psychological theory by reflecting on the passage, once it is properly interpreted.
