  • TITLE: The Wise Men: Notes on Plato’s Phaedrus

    AUTHORS: Luiz Maurício Bentim da Rocha Menezes

    KEYWORDS: Plato, Phaedrus, Nature of the Soul, Myth, Ancient Philosophy

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Access Library Journal, Vol.6 No.8, August 27, 2019

    ABSTRACT: On Plato’s Phaedrus, Socrates, in his Second Speech (243e9-257b6), decides to make a demonstration [aπoδειξιc] that the madness of love was given to us by gods for our happiness. This consists in finding the truth about human nature of the soul [ψυχncφvσεωc], both divine and human. We take this demonstration as an object of our analysis, specifically the passage 245c, where Socrates will affirm that demonstration will be only credible by the wise men (sophoí) and incredible by skilled (deinoí). This work aims to clarify what kind of distinction is that made by Socrates and why only the wise men can believe in such a demonstration.
