Abstract
This paper explores the existential model of authenticity as being inferior to the ideal of authenticity offered in Plato's dialogues. I discuss similarities between Plato's account of authenticity and various accounts represented by continental philosophy. I argue that Plato's presentation of authenticity, through his enduring role as midwife, is superior in exhibiting the meaning of authenticity as well as in engaging the reader in the dynamic dialogue of authenticity
