CORDERO, Néstor Luis. Comments on Part I of Marcelo Boeri's Apariencia y realidad en el pensamiento griego. Diánoia [online]. 2009, vol.54, n.63, pp.205-208. ISSN 0185-2450.

The concepts of "appearance" and "reality" (in the title of the book) is a safe-conduct permitting the author to carry out a true X-ray analysis of a thought -that we commonly call "Greek philosophy"- which acknowledges that we live in a world that could be better, which assumes that anyone who wants to improve his life must aspire to certain ideals. This eminently ethical perspective appears in the section about Socratism and Plato. And perhaps unwillingly the author states the necessity to weaken, and even suppress, the so commented "separation" (khôrismós) between the intelligible and the sensible word, between epistéme and aísthesis. A detailed analysis of Plato's Sophist would enrich Boeri's thesis.

Keywords : ideals; ethics; separation (khôrismós); Plato's Sophist.
