Plato's Philebus

The introduction to this volume briefly describes its aims and its origin in the inaugural seminar of the Plato Dialogue Project. Rather than summarize each essay, the introduction tries to step back and say something about how the parts of the dialogue fit together, in part by way of reminder, in part because the dialogue’s argumentative integrity is often considered to be elusive. We refer you to the essays that follow for a stimulating and insightful guide to some of the glorious and intricate details of Plato’s Philebus.
