Järjen eri aspektit ja hyvän käsittäminen Platonin filosofiassa

Reason, its aspects, and apprehension of the Good in Plato's philosophy

This article deals with Plato's conception of reason and its ability to reach the Good. It is argued that Plato made a distinction between two different uses of reason, one that can be called discursive and the other non-discursive reasoning. Non-discursive reasoning involves apprehension of many different intelligible objects simultaneously in their interconnections with each other. It is shown that this kind of intellectual "vision" is vital to the human conception of the Good in Plato.
