Proceedings of the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy : Volume XIV, 1998 (Proceedings of the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy)
by J.J. Cleary~G.M. Gurtler

Overview -
This volume represents some of the activities of the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy from the academic year 1997-98. It
contains nine colloquia that were hosted by eight different colleges and universities in the greater Boston area. Discussions of the works
of Plato dominate this volume, with six of the nine colloquia based on Platonic texts. Appropriately, the colloquia begin with an analysis of division in the ancient atomists. Later, a study of truth in Aristotle gives a counterpoint to the Platonic interplay of drama and pedagogy or logic and rhetoric examined in papers about the "Theaetetus" and "Symposium". A presentation of Proclus's account of evil revisits some of the issues of sophistry and morality discussed in relation to Plato's "Republic" and "Euthydemus". Finally, the remaining Platonic papers are in a way not about Plato at all, but about Socrates and Xanthippe, supplementing Platonic dialogues with Xenophon and others. Underneath these discussions of ancient texts current modes of philosophy run along, providing a score of alternative interpretative schemes.
