In Plato's Theaetetus, Socrates is portrayed as a midwife to the intellect, a metaphor for his task as a dialectician as he seeks to help give birth to wisdom. Thus it is that the author refers to Plato as the midwife's apprentice. This volume represents an attempt to provide a more manageable account of the author's two volume magnum opus, An Examination of Plato's Doctrines. An accessible and lucid introduction to Plato's ideas is provided which nonetheless challenges traditional interpretations. In particular the author is concerned to offer an interpretation of the significance of what Plato said. The chapters are arranged by topic, for ease of comprehension.
