Revising his 1996 doctoral dissertation for the University of Warwick, though not departing radically from his original contention, Samaras argues that Plato's political thinking develops along a continuous line. He shows how some fundamental principles inform his thinking from beginning to end, and no abrupt breaks occur from one dialogue to the next or within any dialogue, but that the continuity does not mean his political though remains essentially unchanged.
