TheMoreThe Philebus is hard to reconcile with standard interpretations of Plato s philosophy and in this pioneering work Donald Davidson, seeks to take the Philebus at face value and to reassess Plato s late philosophy in the light of the results. The author maintains that the approach to ethics in the Philebus represents a considerable return to the methodology of the earlier dialogues. He emphasizes Plato s reversion to the Socratic elenchus and connects it with the startling reappearance of Socrates as the leading voice in the Philebus.
