Plato studied under Socrates and was Aristotle's teacher. Together
these three Greeks developed the basis of philosophical thinking
for the entire Western world. Plato was also a writer,
mathematician, and founder of the Academy in Athens, which was the
first university in Europe. The Paremenides is one of Plato's more
difficult works. Interpretations have ranged from an introduction
to Platonic metaphysics to seeing the work as a series of tricks
encompassing one large joke. Parmenides is the account of talks
between two philosophers with Socrates. Zeno read his treatise
which defended Parmenidean against those partisans of plurality who
believed that Parmenides's opinion that there is a one gives rise
to intolerable absurdities and contradictions. Topics included in
this dialogue include sameness, being, difference, and unity.
Parmenides has been studied and debated by many leaning scholars
with no real consensus.
