Example text

I am still pondering how their interpretation is meant to be justified. First come the various virtues, and then a completely new dimension is achieved with the agathon — and yet it isn't simply a further arete, a further virtue; it is now what is common to all as a new perspective. : But what is this new perspective for? Doesn't it serve to determine the harmonies of the three parts of the soul and thereby to organize the polls? The city, of course, is the soul writ large, and there are just three classes in the polls, three social castes that correspond to the parts of the soul.

Here we hit upon another very important problem, the problem, that is, of the relationship between rhetoric and hermeneutics. How is the relationship to the thou that takes place in dialogue to be conceived from your hermeneutic position? Is it possible to persuade the other of the truth, or can we only persuade him of what is true for me alone, that is to say, of "my truth," just as the other is persuaded only of his truth? Or should we not say that I can persuade the other, but, at the same time, I must presuppose that he can also persuade me of what he holds to be true?

If one thinks in a sufficiently hermeneutical way, then I would say that it's no cause for concern; for this, too, is really just an indication of something — namely, once again, that there is an inseparability between what is theoretically important and the good. : On the other hand, of course, we must say that the interpretations of the Tubingen school and the Milan school go in an entirely different direction — especially Joachim Kramer. In both the doctrine of the right measure in the Philebus and the doctrine of right mean in the Politics, he finds a principle for recognizing not just being but value as well.
