Review `This book deals with an important and interesting topic in Platonic scholarship, one certainly worthy of consideration. Palmer offers some valuable insights into Plato's understanding of Parmenides' MIND, Vol.110, No.439 `Palmer presents detailed and convincing readings of some of the most difficult passages in the Platonic corpus.' Owen Goldin, BMCR 01/02/05. `Palmer has found a new angle from which to tell the story of the development of the metaphysics of the later dialogues. His analyses of Plato's arguments are careful and sober, and his tracing of their antecedents in Plato's reading of Parmenides is innovative and valuable.' Owen Goldin, BMCR 01/02/05. a challenging and interesting book ... every serious student of ancient philosophy will want to read it. Heythrop Jnl. Jan 01, Vol.42, No.1. `This is a learned book and there is much that is both new and valuable. The discussion of the sight-lovers of Republic 5 ... is very good, and the accounts of Gorgia's influence on the arguments of the Parmenides and the Sophist are particularly insightful. Palmer has read widely and critically, and he engages with much modern and contemporary scholarship.' Patricia Curd, The Classical Review, 2000. `This excellent and extensive survey is valuable reading for scholars and graduate students interested in Plato s metaphysics and epistemology.' N. D. Smith, Choice, Vol.37. No.11/12. `the book makes a number of controversial suggestions on how particular passages in Parmenides could have been taken by Plato, as well as on how particular passages in Plato should be taken by us.' David Bostock, THES, 8 October 1999 About the Author John A. Palmer is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Florida, Gainesville. He was previously Research fellow at Clare Hall, Cambridge.
