(p.202) VI True Belief With an Account
Plato’s Theaetetus

David Bostock

Oxford University Press

This chapter agrees with both Fine and White that the problems which Plato develops for accounts do apply, and were intended to apply, to knowledge of forms just as much as to knowledge of other things. It is argued that it is mainly knowledge of forms that Plato'is interested in, for that would explain why he failed to notice that the earlier wax tablet contains a conclusive objection to his final argument about accounts as distinguishing marks.
