A ordem de leitura dos diálogos de Platão

M. R. Engler, Renilson Bail


O artigo retoma a questão da ordem de leitura dos diálogos de Platão, já explorada na Antiguidade, e discute criticamente a posição do desenvolvimentismo, segundo a qual Platão teria abandonado suas doutrinas do período intermediário. Além disso, ele apresenta sete princípios a partir dos quais se pode criar um ordem ao mesmo tempo dramática e pedagógica para os diálogos.


Platão; ordem de leitura; diálogos
