Work Type



Lecture notes for a course. Plato gives us Socrates' youthful version of the theory of ideas and Parmenides' devastating critique of it, followed by a "gymnastic" of ten categories in relation to the "One." The connection between these two parts of the dialogue will be our main concern. Titled in the New School course catalog as, Plato's Parmenides (core).
