I work mainly on Plato and the Platonic tradition. Areas of special interest include the Platonic Alcibiades I, self-knowledge, the work of Olympiodorus of Alexandria, and narrative analysis of ancient philosophical texts. For a list of my publications please consult my website at Utrecht University: https://www.uu.nl/medewerkers/LAJoosse/Publicaties
