Meaning, Relation, and Existence in Plato's «Parmenides»

The Logic of Relational Realism


Robert Sternfeld and Harold Zyskind

Contents: This scholarly study presents Plato's Theory of Abstract Relations and its applicability to the concrete world of existence. It exhibits Plato's notion of abstract relations as quite distinct from the notion of ideas found in dialogues such as the Republic and as part of a different tradition of thought, found in such men as Leibniz and Russell.
