emotions in Plato

Emotions in Plato

Brill’s Plato Studies Series, Volume: 4
Editors: Laura Candiotto and Olivier Renaut

Emotions (pathè) such as anger, fear, shame, and envy, but also pity, wonder, love and friendship have long been underestimated in Plato’s philosophy. The aim of Emotions in Plato is to provide a consistent account of the role of emotions in Plato’s psychology, epistemology, ethics and political theory. The volume focuses on three main issues: taxonomy of emotions, their epistemic status, and their relevance for the ethical and political theory and practice. This volume, which is the first edited volume entirely dedicated to emotions in Plato’s philosophy, shows how Plato, in many aspects, was positively interested in these affective states in order to support the rule of reason.

Laura Candiotto, PhD. (2011), Alexander von Humboldt Senior Research Fellow at the Free University of Berlin, Germany, published many articles on emotions in Plato and in contemporary philosophy; she recently edited The Value of Emotions for Knowledge (Palgrave, 2019).

Olivier Renaut, PhD. (2007), is Maître de conférences at Université Paris Nanterre in France. He published a comprehensive study of thumos in Plato entitled Platon, La Médiation des émotions. L’éducation du thymos dans les dialogues (Vrin, 2014).

Brill’s Plato Studies Series

Editors: Gabriele Cornelli and Gábor Betegh

Brill’s Plato Studies Series aims to gather together the most recent
and relevant contributions, in order to identify debates and trends
within the study of Plato and to provide a holistic understanding of
the wide range of issues related to Plato’s philosophy. Of special
significance for the series will be the examination of Plato’s
literary style and its relationship to his theoretical project as,
perhaps, one of the central problems in the study of Plato and Ancient
Philosophy as a whole. Even after two thousand years there is still no
consensus about why Plato expresses his ideas in such a unique style
and the series will aim to address this question. In addition, the
Series will warmly welcome contributions focusing on internal and
recurrent issues like the relation between myth and philosophy,
language, epistemology and ontology in Plato’s work. Special attention
will also be given to new interpretative challenges and recent
hermeneutical trends, which have emerged from the globalization of
current Platonic studies. These new approaches to Plato are likely to
change the future frame of Platonic scholarship, providing instruments
and renewed impulses for the generations of philosophers to come.
