Finitude and Transcendence in the Platonic Dialogues (SUNY series in Ancient Greek Philosophy) by Drew A. Hyland



Drew A. Hyland - Author. SUNY series in Ancient Greek Philosophy. Release Date: August 1995. This book explains how to read Plato, emphasizing the philosophic importance of the dramatic aspects of the dialogues, and showing that Plato is an ironic thinker and that his irony is deeply rooted in his philosophy. Professor Hyland's thesis is that finitude, and the response to finitude that he calls 'finite transcendence,' is an informing theme of the Platonic dialogues. This important observation is confirmed in the course of seven chapters that treat distinct yet related features of some of the most familiar dialogues.

Drew A. Hyland, one of Continental philosophy's keenest interpreters of Plato, takes up the question of beauty in three Platonic dialogues. Hyland has brought the spirit of philosophy in the dialogues to life as few others have done―and so given us a gift very much in the spirit of Plato's own. Vol. 17, No. 2, June 2010 (International Journal of the Classical Tradition). Either this book is meant strictly as a companion to the three Platonic Dialogues he analyses, which means that you need to have those nearby to refer to, or he expects the reader to be intimately familiar with them. In the last two chapters he quotes Plato more and you don't get the sense that unless you read those works you can't follow Hyland. He does provide though a good dramatic background to the sections he does quote.
