Plato. Protagoras, Sophists (Greek philosophy), Protagoras, Homer -- Influence

What might seem to be surface details are, in fact, shown to both augment and support the dialogues underlying theme of the nature of virtue. By tracing these seemingly surface details, this paper shows just how Socrates goes about teaching virtue.
