This chapter focuses on Gorgias' suriviving works: esp. Palamedes, but also On Nature, Helen, and the Funeral Oration. While I'm at pains to bring out the diversity of interpretive traditions currently co-existing, I aim to offer a substantially new reading of what these works offer our reflection on the nature of ethical truth.
