In the Theaetetus, Plato looks afresh at a problem to which, he now realizes, he had earlier given an inadequate answer: the problem of the nature of knowledge. What Plato has to say on this question is of great interest and importance, not only to scholars of Plato, but also to philosophers with wholly contemporary interests. This book is a sustained philosophical analysis and critique of the Theaetetus. David Bostock provides a detailed examination of Plato's arguments and the issues that they raise. He adjudicates on rival interpretations of the text, and looks at the relations between this and other works of Plato. The book does not presuppose any knowledge of Greek.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It is an excellent book: simply the best and most up-to-date full-length treatment of this central philosophical work. * Times Literary Supplement *
This book is a tour de force in the Oxford tradition of philosophical commentaries. * Review of Metaphysics *
David Bostock's analysis of the argument of the dialogue and the issues it raises ... does ample justice to its complexity and depth. * Greece and Rome *
Bostock performs a valuable service of pointing out the inadequacies of Plato's arguments, and readers will not have to accept all interpretations presented here in order to benefit from this study. * Religious Studies Review, Volume 16, Number 4/October 1990 *
The book displays Bostock's characteristic virtues: it is admirably clear; it is highly intelligent; and it is often insightful and thought-provoking. * The Philosophical Review, Vol. C, No. 4 (October 1991) *
