Plato. Protagoras, Greek dialogues, Narration -- Rhetoric, Protagoras -- Criticism and interpretation


In the Protagoras, Plato presents a view of the Classical Greek social and political structures, as well as personal attitudes and morals, by implying them through the narrative frame rather than explicitly stating them. The allusions to Homer throughout the Protagoras fuel this sense of the Classical Greek. Neither the structure nor the philosophical arguments, when taken alone, give a complete sense of the Protagoras. But when combined, a complex view of the Classical Greek world is achieved
