Plato. Dialogues, Plato. Phaedo
Plato’s Phaedo has multiple meanings and uses its narrative framework, sets up debates, and implements myths and allusions in order to present this multiplicity of meaning. This paper looks at the above characteristics in the Phaedo and interrogates their use. The Phaedo is nominally about the last hours of Socrates’s life, but it contains far more than mere biography. This paper traces the ways Plato uses this basic framework to create a multi-faceted work.
