PHL 200 Friday, 18 November, 11 -forms are real things of the world that aren’t really real; “qualities” “definitely not properties” we apprehend things in certain ways because of their forms; ie. We see something as red because it has the form of red. - ontos: being. – ousia: (republic) -forms > -geometry > the intelligible -original image > visible -images/shadows -top half: philosophical knowledge, thought. -Bottom half: opinion/belief -pure knowledge is difficult. Parmeneides and third man argument: - not being doesn’t exist. . form never cease to be. -forms are there (being eternal, never not being) to participate in some form; tree + house participate in form of oneness. House in the form of large. -xeno: ‘P said everything is one, because you can’t be and not be’. But to get from point A to point B, you have to cover half distance, half distance of that then half of that. .etc ‘insanity: no one ever ges anywhere!’. The consequences of everything being one is much more appealing. -so everything is one… there are no different things; one thing and that is being.
