This interesting article connects Plato with diagnostic errors. Plato was very interested in rhetoric, of convincing people of his Truth. The article discusses various rhetorical devices and logical fallacies that, because human thought has not radically changed in 2,500 years, exist today.

In relation to Plato, some people believe in the Platonic view of diagnosis, namely, that there is always a True diagnosis and our job is to find it. This is a version of Platonic essences. The Sophists would have had a different view of diagnosis.
