About this product
- DescriptionPlato's thought evolves from the epistemology of the Me, Phaedo, and Republic to the Combined Doctrine of the Theaetetus. The Combined Doctrine maintains that both Forms and certain objects rooted in perception are objects of kwledge. Dialectic results in apprehension of the Good, and consequently of being, which brings about a permanent change in a person's state of mind enabling one to kw what one previously believed. The Combined Doctrine resolves the paradoxes of the refutations of the Theaetetus. It turns out that the difference between true belief and kwledge for Plato amounts to difference in states of mind.
