In Praise of Plato's Poetic Imagination Paperback

Description

This book examines the role Plato accords to imagination in the ancient quarrel between poetry and philosophy.

Claiming that the function of imagination evokes a realm of praxis within Plato's dialogues heretofore largely unrecognized, this book offers an interpretation of Plato that challenges the more orthodox view in which poetry and the arts are denigrated, and indeed, seen as eradicable from the dialogues altogether.
