“ἐὰν ὡσαύτως τῇ ψυχῇ ἐπὶ πάντα ἴδῃς” (Platonis Parmenides, 132a 1 - 132b 2). Voir les Idées avec son âme et le “Troisième homme” de Platon

Abstract : The argument almost every scholar refers to as “Plato’s Third Man” has been much discussed and variously accounted for. Most of the time logical analysis gets the lion’s share and little attention is paid to issues related to the text. Our approach is the other way around. By way of a close textual analysis, three major points are meant to be proven : first, the argument’s structure is not deductive but iterative ; secondly, the soul plays an important role, albeit a mismatched one ; thirdly, the interest of the argument depends not in the least on its exemplary value, which allows it to serve as a remarkable case study to highlight assumptions other objections less explicitly rely upon.
