    Seeing Through Images: The Bottom of Plato's Divided Line.Yancy Hughes Dominick - 2010 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 48 (1):pp. 1-13.
    In this paper I defend a reading of eikasia as the viewing of an image as an image; this condition need not involve any confusion of image and original. The “standard reading” of eikasia, on which experiencing this state involves mistaking images for originals, is unsatisfactory, despite the fact that it offers an attractive account of the relation of the line and the cave. The initial description of eikasia makes the suggestion that Socrates believes that anyone consistently mistakes images for (...)

    Teaching Nature: Natural Virtue and Practical Wisdom in the Nicomachean Ethics.Yancy Hughes Dominick - 2006 - Southwest Philosophy Review 22 (1):103-111.
    Aristotle's account of virtue faces two dangers: the account appears circular, and the text seems to suggest that virtue is relative. Virtue sets the ends for practical wisdom. Without practical wisdom, though, one lacks 'real virtue.' Virtue and practical wisdom appear to depend upon each other. Further, habituation is the source of virtue. Virtue appears to depend upon one's training; virtue looks relative. The concept of 'natural virtue' offers an escape from these difficulties. Virtue and practical wisdom, though related, are (...)

    Acting Other: Atossa And Instability In Herodotus.Yancy Hughes Dominick - 2007 - Classical Quarterly 57 (2):432-444.
    In an attempt to examine the notion of unstable difference in Herodotus as part of the presentation of an unstable world, this article focuses on the stories involving Atossa, Darius’ wife. In the stories of Atossa, obvious markers of difference appear, only to come into question, especially in Herodotus’ stories. Never in these stories, though, does Herodotus completely subvert the audience’s expectations of sexual or cultural difference—the differences between men and women become unstable in the stories,yet those differences do persist. (...)

    Images for the Sake of the Truth in Plato's Symposium.Yancy Hughes Dominick - 2013 - Classical Quarterly 63 (2):558-566.
    After arriving drunk at Agathon's party, Alcibiades offers to praise Socrates instead of love, the object of the other characters' praise. In praising Socrates, Alcibiades says that he will have to use images . He assures his companions, however, that this ‘is no joke: the image will be for the sake of the truth’ . Alcibiades goes on to present his famous images of a Socrates who is full of divine images , and who casts spells with his words . (...)

    The Image of the Noble Sophist.Yancy Hughes Dominick - 2018 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 22 (2):203-220.
    In this paper, I begin with an account of the initial distinction between likenesses and appearances, a distinction which may resemble the difference between sophists and philosophers. That distinction first arises immediately after the puzzling appearance of the noble sophist, who seems to occupy an odd space in between sophist and philosopher. In the second section, I look more closely at the noble sophist, and on what that figure might tell us about images and the use of images. I also (...)
