ARCHE LOGOU is the first book-lenght study devoted to the introductory scenes or proems of Plato’s dialogues: the liveliness and complex architecture of these scenes are not just a literary ornament of Plato’s philosophy, but a clever allusion to the meaning of his dialectical writing and his authorial anonymity. By reinterpreting the traditional role of exordia, the Platonic proems perform the indispensable philosophical function of preserving the sense of Plato’s philosophy for the reader akin to it.
