Digital Plato

The reception of Plato’s work in ancient times is characterized by a tremendous diversity and has not nearly been researched enough. The goal of the interdisciplinary project Digital Plato is to remedy these deficiencies and compile testimonies, citations and paraphrases in the form of a digital thesaurus. The team works on the conceptualization of cultural basic terms in this context and the development of digital methods to effectively support the acquisition of currently undiscovered paraphrases.
