Abstract

This paper locates Plato's form of dialectic within and alongside media narratives in interactive media and pervasive games. Unlike immersive media experiences or other spectacles separate from the everyday, this access to a perceived authenticity is generated through a play of ideas similar to Plato's dialectic, described by Hans-Georg Gadamer as necessarily in opposition to sense experience and linked with the formation of logic in the Greeks.
