Plato and Analytic Epistemology. Has Plato Been Set Aside?

Abstract

I considered a brief history of epistemology, its themes and its platonic inheritances. I provided some reasons to explain why Plato is often quoted and he is considered the classic author of some of the most important puzzles treated today in the literature. We saw why we spoke about ‘platonic puzzles’, although, I am sure, this would be not so appreciated by Plato! Nevertheless, Plato’s removal is explained by historical reasons and by logical arguments. I underline that historical reasons are the sufficient causes that explain why Plato is substantially ignored by the actual debate in epistemology. g-pili-platone-viii
