Pieper's thesis is closely argued. Knowledge of Plato's dialogues is certainly helpful but not absolutely necessary to follow his line of reasoning. A knowledge of Christian theology is also helpful. Pieper frames his conclusion in explicitly Christian theological terms, although it would likely be intelligable in other religious frameworks.
"The Platonic Myths" is a short but challenging thought piece about truth, presented with an excellent introduction by James Schall, and highly recommended.
