    Plato’s Later Dialogues The late ‘dialogues’ are less literary, perhaps less dramatic, less colourful and more analytical. The irony and imagery and other literary resources which Plato used in his previous works to depict people undertaking discussions are now employed to bring the ideas and the arguments themselves to life.   The Laws is one of Plato’s last dialogues. In it, he sketches the basic political structure and laws of an ideal city named Magnesia. Despite the fact that the Laws treats a number of basic issues in political and ethical philosophy as well as theology, it has suffered neglect compared with the recent years, however, more scholarly attention has been paid to the Laws.

    Plato - Plato - Early dialogues: The works in this group (to be discussed in alphabetical order below) represent Plato’s reception of the legacy of the historical Socrates; many feature his characteristic activity, elenchos, or testing of putative experts. The early dialogues serve well as an introduction to the corpus. They are short and entertaining and fairly accessible, even to readers. Sophist, one sees Plato rethinking and, perhaps, rejecting the theory. At the same time, because Socrates was Plato’s mouthpiece in the middle period, the character of Socrates now becomes a minor figure, becomes a figure of ridicule and scorn, or drops out altogether. The later dialogues are not the place to go to get an accurate picture of.

      The Socratic method of investigation, the elenchus, is explained by example in Plato’s Five Dialogues. In Euthyphro, Apology, and Crito, Plato’s character of Socrates employs the elenchus as a way to challenge interlocutors. If an Athenian claims to be knowledgeable about a subject, Socrates sets out to prove that this knowledge is unfounded. Plato (/ ˈ p l eɪ t oʊ /; PLAY-toe Greek: Πλάτων Plátōn, [plá.tɔːn] in Classical Attic; / or / – / BCE) was an Athenian philosopher during the Classical period in Ancient Greece, founder of the Platonist school of thought, and the Academy, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.. He is widely considered the pivotal figure in the history.

"Desjardins' conclusion, that the Theaetetus really does point to a particular theory of knowledge, certainly will be controversial, since for many people the idea that the Theaetetus fails to define knowledge is the cornerstone of their interpretation of Plato's later philosophical thought.

But whatever one thinks about the conclusion, it must be agreed that the manner in which it is defended. This book proposes and defends a radically new account of Plato's method of argument and enquiry in his early dialogues.

Vasilis Politis challenges the traditional account according to which these dialogues are basically about the demand for definitions, and questions the equally traditional view that what lies behind Plato's method of argument is a peculiar theory of knowledge.
