The difficulties in interpreting Plato depend on a misunderstanding of his writing technique. To overcome them, this study focuses on his technique, based on a laborious game, by which he prompts the reader to take action in response to his provocations and to his use of Socratic maieutics: it produces the sequence of dialogues as a great protreptic. Understanding his use of this technique allows us to grasp his uni-multiple vision of reality.Maurizio Migliori, former professor of History of Philosophy at the University of Macerata (Italy) and member of the International Plato Society, was a specialist on Plato to whom he dedicated numerous books and over 100 articles, in international journals and books.
