What draws me back to the ancient Greeks, time and time again, is their extraordinary capacity to give today’s philosophers an exciting old way to think about new things. The overarching aim of my research is to show how this can happen, and how grateful we should be when it does. Recently I have focused my attention on what I take to be some of Plato’s boldest and most striking arguments concerning the ethical status of pleasure and pain, the metaphysics of mind and value, the sustainability of materialism and relativism, and the role of thought in speech and action.
