Professor Fletcher’s research interests lie primarily in Ancient Greek Philosophy, especially ethics and moral psychology. She has written several articles about the examination of pleasure in Plato’s Philebus, and she is currently working on the relationship between the body and the soul in Plato’s Timaeus. Her recent publications include “Plato on Pure Pleasure and the Best Life” (Phronesis 2014), “Aisthēsis, Reason and Appetite in the Timaeus” (Phronesis 2016) and “The Divine Method and the Disunity of Pleasure in the Philebus” (Journal of the History of Philosophy, 2017).
