Long time APS member, Holly Moore, defended her dissertation on Plato’s Analogical Thought at DePaul University in October.
Dr. Moore joined Christopher Long for episode 15 of the Digital Dialogue in which she discussed her dissertation. Holly traces the manner in which Plato uses the structure of analogies to reflect on the nature of philosophical images.
As Holly puts it in one of her comments:
So, analogy, then, is the most philosophical of images, insofar as it acts like a reflection upon the very structure of imaging and as a reflection upon philosophical reflection.
