Platon ve Problematoloji: Doğru Cevabın Sorusunu Bulmak
MetadataShow full item record
Contemporary philosopher Michel Meyer, who developed the theory of problematology, argues that a proposition should always be understood through both the questions behind and in front of it. The upstream question is the one answered by the proposition, and the downstream one is the new question produced by the answer. However, Western philosophy has always repressed this logic of questioning and developed an answer-oriented understanding. This repression began with Plato, because with the theory of reminiscence, questions were reduced to temporary tools for the discovery of a truth that was already in the soul. But contemporary Plato scholar Monique Dixsaut offers a different approach: as Plato’s theory of truth lies at the intersection of questioning and answering, responses only have meaning in a perpetual dialectic of questioning. Because, so that the new reader can appropriate the correct answer, this answer must pose new questions to him. Thus, our objective is to maintain that it is possible to continue the questioning process despite the correct answer, against the two approaches which maintain, on the one hand, that the final answers put an end to the questioning, and on the other hand, that the continuation of questioning is an obstacle to a final answer.
