Summary
One of the central challenges to contemporary political philosophy is the apparent impossibility of arriving at any commonly agreed upon 'truths'. As Nietzsche observed in his 'Will to Power', the currents of relativism that have come to characterise modern thought can be said to have been born with ancient sophistry. If we seek to understand the strengths and weaknesses of contemporary radical relativism, we must therefore look first to the sophists of antiquity - the most famous and challenging of whom is Protagoras. With this work, Robert C. Bartlett provides the first close reading of Plato's two-part presentation of Protagoras
