Example text

This difficulty, so casually noted as the consequence of a coarse and tasteless procedure, was destined to set up very important aesthetic problems later, when music liberated itself more fully from words: if it is hard to tell what pure music imitates, and judge its success, that may be because it imitates nothing. But in most cases, at least, Plato thinks, there is a special task for the competent judge. He must have "first, a knowledge of the nature of the original; next, a knowledge of the correctness of the copy; and thirdly, a knowledge of the excellence with which the copy is executed" (66gab).

Gorgias 474d). In the Philebus, Plato is prepared to say what sorts of things are beautiful, that is, what essential properties beautiful things have in common, without which, he thinks, they could not be beautiful. He is sure these properties are closely associated with beauty, as the conditions under which it is possible for the Form to become embodied in concrete particulars-but he does not want to say that these properties define beauty, or constitute an analysis of it. And probably he means beauty itself to be a single simple property, not analyzable at all.
