Show Summary Details


This chapter begins with an analysis of the coherence of the Theaetetus. It then discusses Plato's problem, which arises through a misconception on his part, but one that stems from long-standing views about the forms, and leads to too crude a view about what it is to understand a judgement.

Keywords: Plato; Theaetetus; knowledge; judgement
