Disegnare un sofista in Accademia: Prodico nell' Appendix Platonica

Abstract : The presence of Prodicus in the pseudo-platonic Eryxias and Axiochus constitutes an exception in the corpus of Academic pseudoplatonica. The aim of this paper is not to investigate the presence of effectively Prodicean material in these dialogues, a fact that can be excluded at least for the Axiochus, but to understand the reason underlying the choice of the character. Prodicus seems to specialize for the expression of formulations which the author perceives as insufficient if not plainly wrong: his characterization, which showcases generic traits derived from a series of τόποι in Plato's dialogues, helps to understand the role he appears to have assumed in the school's production.
