Plato) and ancient aesthetics: a substantial article on catharsis in Aristotle appeared in Phronesis in , and a recent paper, "Plato the Writer," attempts to sum up the approach to reading.

In such a proportion our “real” world becomes the symbol of Plato's ideal world. Berkeley recurs to it.and probably some elements of Plato remain still undetected in Aristotle.
