Rivals or Relatives? Tracking Truth and Ways of Knowing among Plato and the Sophists in Classical Greece

Research leading to a book on the relationship between Plato his philosophical rivals, the Sophists (5th to 4th century BC).

My book project challenges the dominant narratives about Plato's rivalry with his sophistic contemporaries in classical Greece (5th–4th century BCE) and highlights the broader conversation on both sides that fostered new modes of inquiry in the Western tradition. It tells a more realistic story of philosophy proceeding as a structured conversation, one that is much more dialogical and inclusive than those dominant narratives suggest.
