Abstract

This contribution considers the evidence of λογος and μυος in Plato's metaphysical exposés Grg. 523a1-527e7, Phd. 107c1-115a7, R. 614a5-621d3 and Phdr. 246a3-257b6. The two terms differ widely. λογος proves to be the central idea of Platonic philosophy, meaning in particular philosophical arguing, investigation, debate, concept. Understood as a discourse on mythical level μυος is without doubt a remarkable phenomenon in Plato's dialogues, especially when it exhibits divinatory dimensions. But it can be a simple story-telling, too. Abandoning the reality μυος fails to come up to the whole truth. It goes without saying that both λογος and μυος have further significant semantic facets. Although they seem sometimes to approach each other, λογος and μυος are basically different, as the texts display in detail.
