The Brute Within

This chapter raises and explains two central questions about Plato’s theory of the tripartite soul. First, what is involved in Plato’s claim that the embodied human soul is a thing of parts? Secondly, does Plato have a reasonable basis for holding that the soul is composed of precisely three parts, reason, spirit, and appetite?

Keywords:   Plato, soul, partition, tripartition, appetite, reason, spirit
