Image and Copy in Contemporary Deconstruction of Platonism

Andrea Le Moli


This paper aims at investigating the relationship between some contemporary Interpretationsof Plato's Ontology and the Theory of Image-Copy connection developed in many Dialogues suchas Sophist, Philebus, Timaeus and Republic. By examinating some of the most relevant criticisms tothis Theory cast by french Philosophers such as Deleuze and Derrida and by retracing the roots ofthese criticisms to the common source of Nietzsche's and Heidegger's Thought, the paper argues away to overcome the stiff opposition which is commonly held between these two fronts, thus tryingto refine the hermeneutical approach to Plato which almost dominated the XX century.
