This concluding chapter decries the well-intentioned current tendency to advance interpretations which minimize the degree to which Plato downgrades the world of sense experience. It argues that this effort to represent him as less alienated from latter-day intellectual attitudes is made at the sacrifice of his most distinctive and influential doctrines.

Keywords: Plato; intellectual attitudes; influential doctrines; sense experience
