Editorial Reviews


'My overview obviously cannot do justice to the subtlety and richness of Crivelli's analysis ... He soberly chooses among the interpretative possibilities, never yielding to speculative interpretations. The virtues of his account are comprehensiveness, detailed and clear presentation, and the philosophical coherence of the interpretation embraced.' László Bene, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Book Description

In this book Paolo Crivelli closely examines Plato's Sophist and shows how Plato's brilliant solution to the falsehood paradox is radically different from those put forward by modern philosophers. His book will be important for all who are interested in the Sophist and in ancient ontology and philosophy of language.
