To trace the development of dramatic Platonism, this chapter highlights the Socrates play and how it follows Plato's presentation of Socrates' thoughts and actions in dramatic form. It also tells the story on how Plato became known as a playwright. In addition, Marsilio Ficino's realization of the dramatic form on Plato's philosophy that led to the beginning of dramatic Platonism is illustrated in detail.
