Arendt writes: ‘Closely connected with his doubt about the validity of persuasion is Plato’s furious denunciation of doxa, opinion, which not only runs like a red thread through his political works but became one of the cornerstones of his concept of truth. Platonic truth, even when doxa is not mentioned, is always understood as the very opposite of opinion’ (2005: 7–8). Yet in Arendt’s judgement, ‘the opposition of truth and opinion was certainly the most anti-Socratic conclusion that Plato drew from Socrates’ trial’.
