'… an extraordinarily rich book, providing both a main thesis and a number of intelligent readings of single passages … Sedley's book has struck me as an intensely humane and - if I may say so - Platonic piece of writing. His prose is admirably terse and vivid, the very answers he gives to the problems posed by the Cratylus raise issues and questions on a higher level, so that one has always the exciting impression of having embarked on a true philosophical journey.' Journal of Hellenic Studies
'Every page of this book is characterized by the sanity of judgement and depth of knowledge of ancient thought which are the hallmarks of the author. It is a model of clarity and of austere stylistic elegance. The volume inaugurates C. U. P.'s new series Cambridge Studies in the Dialogues of Plato, under the general editorship of M. M. McCabe; it sets a high standard for subsequent contributors.' British Journal for the History of Philosophy
This book presents a global reinterpretation of Cratylus, Plato's only dialogue devoted to the subject of language. It is designed to be accessible to anyone interested either in Plato or in the history of linguistic thought. The main text does not presuppose prior expertise in Plato or knowledge of Greek.See all Product description

Review of Sedley's 'Cratylus'
4 September 2012 - Published on Amazon.com
8 people found this helpful.
Let me note: this is a critical commentary on Plato's Cratylus, not a copy of the text itself. That said, what a commentary! Sedley has a simple, charming cadence to his prose, making his arguments easy to follow. I am deeply indebted to this commentary for my current understanding of the dialogue. Even dissenting opinions made more sense (whether good sense or bad) after I reconsidered them from Sedley's perspective.
