Sample text

I lOp. , pp. 493-4, 593. THE DOCTRINE OF IDEAS AND THE RELATION OF IDEAS TO EACH OTHER That the ideas did not stand each in isolation from all the rest, like a world apart, but intercommunicated, was a fuudamental part of the doctrine. And we may turn now from questions concerning what ideas there are to questions concerning their relations. Two problems arise here: that of their relations to sensibles, and that of their relations to each other. It looks as if the second only attracted attention after the first.

The whole matter is very fully discussed in pp. s Aristote. At any rate it is clear that this point in the theory exercised men's minds. And it is instructive to consider the order in which Parmenides is made to propound examples to Socrates for his acceptance. The latter introduced his distinction between the sensible many and the ideas in answer to Zeno, who had attempted to confute the existence of the many sensibles we perceive by pointing to the fact that contradictory predicates can be asserted of them, so that they cannot be real, and thereby had brought support to the Parmenidean doctrine that nothing exists but the One.
