Example text

Such praise makes us think of unworthy lovers who flatter their beloved for their pleasure and without considering his own good. Charmides’ rueful behaviour may give rise to similar thoughts. He provokes Critias by advancing the latter’s conception of sôphrosynê without revealing his identity (161b). When he suggests that perhaps the author of the definition was really ignorant, ‘he gives a sly laugh and glances at Critias’ (162b). And he pushes the right button, as it were, thus forcing his guardian to take Plato’s Representations of the ‘Socratics’ 15 over his own rôle in the debate (162c-d).

Right from the start the former appears to recognise the importance of dialogue and its relevance to philosophy (cf. 154e-155a). And he is the only interlocutor of the so-called early dialogues represented as almost a match for Plato’s Socrates. Indeed, after the round with Charmides, Socrates mentions Critias’ maturity and studies (cf. hêlêkias heneka kai epimeleias: 162d-e) and acknowledges that he would find it much more pleasurable (poly an hêdion: 162e) to investigate the nature of sôphrosynê, temperance, jointly with Critias rather than with the younger man.
