That imitation has harmful effects is a complex matter; Plato’s argument rests on several crucial assumptions concerning the effect of poetry on.

Plato's extensive discussions of poetry frustrate these expectations. He did not write a treatise on the subject—indeed, he wrote no treatises, and confined his thought to “dramatic” dialogues that are themselves shaped poetically—and the remarks he offers us both meander unsystematically, even within a single dialogue, and branch off. In The Republic, Plato described the ideal city, and said that the Poets would be cast out of the city, along with the can be sort of hard to understand why he hated the poets so much, or thought they were so dangerous as to be exiled entirely, which seems a little extreme to us today.

Like the other answer, in some ways Plato was opposed to poetry. In particular, he did not like the mimetic aspect of poety - namely that poetry imitated life.

This aspect of poetry was seen as. Plato: The Dialogue Form - Republic. The Republic is consider by many to be Plato's masterwork. It certainly is one of the most important texts of political theory. In the Republic Plato reasons his way (by means of a lively discussion at a dinner party) to a description of the perfect political system.

Plato (/ ˈ p l eɪ t oʊ /; PLAY-toe Greek: Πλάτων Plátōn, pronounced [plá.tɔːn] in Classical Attic; / or / – / BC) was an Athenian philosopher during the Classical period in Ancient Greece, founder of the Platonist school of thought, and the Academy, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

He is widely considered the pivotal figure in Born: / or / BC, Athens, Greece. Plato: Io, a dialogue of Plato, concerning poetry. (London: Printed by H. Woodfall, ), also by Floyer Sydenham Plato: Plato against the atheists, or, the tenth book of the dialogue on laws, accompanied with critical notes, and followed by extended dissertations on some of the main points of the Platonic philosophy and theology.

Believe it or not, the English title The Republic may not actually be the most accurate translation of this dialogue's Greek title Politeia. "Politeia" means something much closer to our word "regime," which actually makes a bit more sense. Considering that Plato's city is an aristocracy in which the state controls practically every part of life, calling it a "republic," with the democratic.

Benjamin Jowett (–) was an Anglican clergyman and educator. His translations of Plato’s Dialogues appeared in The translations from poetry come from Jowett’s translations of both Plato and Plato’s quotations from others.

Dialogue between Plato and Aristotle(c. – B.C.E.) “Beauty is the example of a form; beauty is not something that you can encounter directly in the physical world like an object such as a tree or horse.A tree or a horse may or may not be beautiful, but beauty meets with objects.

Beauty does not stand alone, but it accompanies objects in the physical world”, said Plato. “The old quarrel between philosophy and poetry” that Plato mentions in book X of the Republic comes in the form of a full-blown argumentation between philosophy and rhetoric in Gorgias, where Socrates’s interlocutor, by the same name of the dialogue, defines the rhetorician as a maker of speeches of blame and praise, and philosophy is.

Plato (Plátōn, "broad"; / BC – / BC) was a philosopher in Classical Greece. He was also a mathematician, student of Socrates, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

Prior to publication of this book, much had been written on Plato as a critic of literature, but no commentaries had appeared in English on the Ion, or the opening books of the Republic in which Plato launches his famous attack on poetry, since the early years of this century.

This volume brings together these texts and the relevant section of Republic /5(3). Socratic dialogue (Ancient Greek: Σωκρατικὸς λόγος) is a genre of literary prose developed in Greece at the turn of the fourth century BC.

It is preserved in the works of Plato and discussion of moral and philosophical problems between two or more characters in a dialogue is an illustration of one version of the Socratic method.Plato’s dialogues are themselves “examples of artistry that continue to be stageworthy;” it is a paradox that “Plato the supreme enemy of art is also the supreme artist.” Plato develops a more elaborate critique of poetry in other dialogues such as in Phaedrus a, Symposium a, Republic a, Laws b–d.Overall Impression: Plato is one of the few philosophers who also writes good literature.

His best dialogues are a pleasure to read--some can be tedious. (I have made summaries of the dialogs which I enjoyed the most.) Notes per the Princeton University book and various Web sources. Socrates lived from to in Athens.
