Title: Edward Jeremiah, Melbourne
Knowledge as a state of the properly integrated self. A defence of the  
Socratic paradox that "no one errs willingly".

Socrates' claim that no one makes willing and knowing moral mistakes has  
been consistently criticised for its allegedly flawed intellectualism.  
Knowing right from wrong, the argument goes, in no way necessitates moral  
action. I will defend the paradoxes against this criticism, developing a  
line of interpretation implicit in Plato's text and the work of other  
Platonists which also has good experimental support from contemporary  
psychology. Basically I will try to show that the assertion "I knew what I  
was doing was wrong at the time I was doing it" (which the Socratic  
principle implies can never be true) involves a problematic identification  
of the subject "I", and that true ethical knowledge cannot be instantiated  
in a disintegrated self.
