16 On the Way to Sophia: Heidegger on Plato's Dialectic, Ethics, and Sophist FRANCISCO J. GONZALEZ Skidmore College Until recently, assessments of Heidegger's interpretation of Plato have been confined to his analysis of the Republic's Cave Analogy in Platons Lehre von der Wahrheit, the discussion of the same analogy and of a section of the Theaetetus in the lecture course Vom Wesen der Wahrheit (1931/32), and scattered, brief discussions of isolated passages from other dialogues. The great lacuna in the Heideggerian Gesamtausgabe has been a detailed interpretation of an entire Platonic dialogue. This situation has changed with the publication of the lecture course on Plato's .Sophist (1924/25).'

With this course, therefore, we are finally in a position to assess the extent to which Heidegger succeeded in coming to terms with Plato's thought. In this paper I argue
