Plato’s method of collection and division
The aim of my dissertation is to examine Plato’s method of collection and division. This method, used most famously in the Sophist and Statesman, is connected to both language and definition. I will focus on the usage of collection and division outside of these two main dialogues, discussing both the Platonic corpus and texts by other authors, both predecessors and Neoplatonists.
