    About The Book

    In the Hippias Major, Socrates and Hippias set out to find a definition for “beauty”, but are destined to fail due to their inability to formulate an answer which encompasses the entire concept. The actual Greek term that is used in the dialogue is καλόν, which as an adjective often means fine or noble as well as beautiful. For this reason, translators such as Paul Woodruff typically translate the term (τὸ καλόν — the abstract noun of the adjective) as “the Fine” (things) instead of “Beauty.”

    Published with the assistance of a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Paul Woodruff is Professor of Philosophy, University of Texas at Austin.
