Library descriptions. This treatise offers a new solution to the famous puzzle of the so-called "gymnastic" half of Plato's "Parmenides". The author shows that the work serves to introduce a metaphysics which had outgrown problems commonly associated with Plato's middle dialogues, creating a bridge to his later work.
New York: Oxford University Press, a991. Constance Meinwald's book on the Parmenides appears toward the end of a decade of intensive study by other scholars of that forbidding-and profound-dialogue. Perhaps unavoidably then, her work will be read in tandem with this recent scholarship. The concluding chapters of Meinwald's study, including a brief resolution of the Third Man issue (a 55-57), will be found useful only if the reader accepts this interpretive structure. In the Introduction, Meinwald distinguishes two types of Parmenides interpretation. The first, "rejectionism," assumes that the contradictions in the dialectical exercise portion of the dialogue "are real," an assumption that "produces a need to find things to reject" (so).

Predication and the Parmenides Constance C.
Plato's Parmenides consists in a critical examination of the theory of forms, a set of metaphysical and epistemological doctrines articulated and defended by the character Socrates in the dialogues of Plato's middle period (principally Phaedo, Republic II–X, Symposium). According to this theory, there is a single, eternal, unchanging, indivisible, and non-sensible form corresponding to every predicate or property.
