Title: 'Revisiting the Arguments between Socrates and Thrasymachus in Republic I'


This paper examines the arguments between Thrasymachus and Socrates in the first book of the Republic and clarifies their structure, while proposing a novel account of Thrasymachus' views which defends them various criticisms and allows us to better see what is really at issue between Socrates and Thrasymachus.


Convenors: Dr Karen Margrethe Nielsen, Prof Ursula Coope, and Dr Luca Castagnoli
