This five star rating system just doesn't cut it. I enjoyed this much more than the Parmenides, but I can't quite say I "really" liked it. Regardless, this aporetic dialogue focuses on knowledge. As a fan of Platonic myth and metaphor (simply for its beauty and richness,) this dialogue has plenty; the midwife analogy, the aviary, and the wax block. Some interesting issues in knowledge are developed and refuted leaving us to ponder: has Plato truly abandoned knowledge as true belief with an account?
