Plato on Recognition in the Realm of Politics: Gorgias 513a7-c2

The paper will deal with Plato and his concept of political recognition, as keyed to the Athenian democracy. It will examine the Gorgias (510-14), and discuss terms relevant to political recognition in this and other of his dialogues: philotimia (honour, or the ambition to achieve honour); hamilla and agōn (competition); philia (friendship); prosphilēs/eunoia (goodwill); and mimēsis / mimētēs (emulation / emulator).
