Parmenides

1. What are Parmenides’ criticisms of the doctrine of the Forms? Be sure to provide a detailed discussion of the Third Man argument. Note that I did not discuss all the criticisms in the video.  2. How do you understand the shifts evident in the Parmenides? Namely: i. The manner in which Plato represents the doctrine of the Forms. ii. The manner in which Plato represents the character, Socrates.   As always, be sure to support your claims using relevant primary and secondary sources.
