The Philosopher in Plato's Statesman
Together with "Dialectical Education and Unwritten Teachings in Plato's Statesman"

While not every reader will agree with the lessons Miller himself draws from this approach, none should fail to be impressed by its interpretive power. All this is exciting stuff. The interpretive pathway on which Miller has embarked has the potential for changing the face of scholarship on the late Platonic dialogues.
