About Book

Book Description
Theaetetus records the first critical attempt to come to grips with certain intricate and vexing problems of human knowledge. What is required in the interest of philosophy is a theory of knowledge. The historical importance of the Theaetetus is that the chief problems in this field were first raised and discussed in it.

Download Description
Some dialogues of Plato are of so various a character that their relation to the other dialogues cannot be determined with any degree of certainty. The Theaetetus, like the Parmenides, has points of similarity both with his earlier and his later writings. The perfection of style, the humour, the dramatic interest, the complexity of structure, the fertility of illustration, the shifting of the points of view, are characteristic of his best period of authorship.
