plato s account of falsehood crivelli paolo

Abstract: In this book Paolo Crivelli closely examines Plato's Sophist and shows how Plato's brilliant solution to the falsehood paradox is radically different from those put forward by modern philosophers. While the Eleatic visitor and Theaetetus maintain throughout the argument that Change and Stability do not mix and use this. Some philosophers argue that false speech and false belief are impossible. In the Sophist, Plato addresses this 'falsehood paradox', which purports to prove that one can neither say nor believe falsehoods because to say or believe a falsehood is to say or believe something that is not, and is therefore not there to be said or believed. He soberly chooses among the interpretative possibilities, never yielding to speculative interpretations.

The key passages are presented with Greek text, English translation, and some philological footnotes; and then comments and analyses are given. The responsibility for the remaining errors is of course only mine. He raises several points against the current views e. Sentences, false sentences, and false beliefs; Appendix: the Sophist on true and false sentences: formal presentation.
