Czy można świadomie czynić zło? Intelektualizm etyczny w Protagorasie Platona

Can The Evil Be Done Consciously? Ethical Intellectualism In Plato's Protagoras


The most obvious paradox of Plato's dialogue Protagoras is statement that no one does not consciously make evil. The statement is connected with the rejection of two phenomena: an acrasia and the free will. It seems that Plato has made a considerable correction of the intellectualistic position in the Republic, but he repeats this paradox also in the late dialogue Timaeus. So it should be asked: what is the sense of the ethical intellectualism in the Protagoras? Does the ethical intellectualism deny the self-evident facts concerning human behavior? Did Plato really change his view? Is Aristotle's criticism of the ethical intellectualism accurate? The answers can be found in this paper.
