“Speaking Well” and Knowledge in Plato’s Ion – Philosophy Core Concepts

Is a Keynote by Next Week Possible? Find Out How.

This is a video in my new Core Concepts series — designed to provide students and lifelong learners a brief discussion focused on one main concept from a classic philosophical text and thinker.

This video focuses on Plato’s work, The Ion, and discusses the implications of what Socrates calls “speaking well” or “speaking poorly” (i.e. as someone with expertise) for the question of who possesses knowledge in that dialogue.
