In the article, the Author analyzes the dialogue Lovers or Rivals. Some scholars argue in favor of Plato’s authorship, while others agree on its inauthenticity. This latter thesis is defended without reappraising and developing the most prevalent hypothesis, namely that the dialogue was composed in the third century BCE as a pamphlet against the Peripatetic School. The Author advances the hypothesis that the Lovers was written by a disciple of Plato in the fourth century BCE, and that the dialogue clearly attacks Isocrates and, in particular, his conception of philosophy as described for example in his Antidosis. The Author goes on to argue that the dialogue possesses a protreptic intent and may be addressing some of those issues that were given much consideration by Plato himself: finding a proper definition of philosophy and encouraging philosophers to engage in politics.
Keywords: Isocrates, Plato, pseudo-Platonic, Early Academy, Rival-Lovers, ancient political thought.
