The difficulties of distinguishing what is early from what is late in Pater's work are illustrated by a passage of some 370 words that appears both in the periodical version of chapter IV of Gaston de Latour and in chapter VII of Plato and Platonism. In both occurrences the passage represents Montaigne's skepticism as a phenomenon characteristic of the modern age, but in Plato and Platonism it is also associated with the skeptical tendencies of Plato's thought. In fact, Montaigne's designedly inconclusive method resembles modern forms of skepticism less than the ancient modes from which it historically derived, and proved of greater interest to Pater as he grew increasingly uncertain of the bold heterodoxies in his earlier work. Whether the reshuffled text is late or early is also uncertain. Since Pater lectured on Plato throughout his academic career, it is possible that the analogy between Montaigne and Plato dates from an earlier time. **********
