This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the philosopher Plato's concept of chora and its relation with the Good. Chora was developed and originally conceptualized by Plato in his dialogue titled Timaeus. The chapter analyzes Plato's view on metaphor and suggests that he never carried out any formal analysis of metaphor. His analogical arguments often employed resemblances that were sometimes invalid. This book also examines the philosophical view of Plato on the chiasmus between chora and the Good.
