Reviews: This volume seeks to show how the philosophy of Plato relates to the literary form of his discourse.

Myth is one aspect of this relation whose importance for the study of Plato is only now beginning to be recognized. Reflection on this topic is essential not only for understanding Plato s conception of philosophy and its methods, but also for understanding more broadly the relation.

Book Recommendation. If you want to know more about the allegory of the cave and the world of forms, I recommend this short book of around 40 pages that tells the story as close as Plato did and explains it at the same time in a lot more detail.
