About this book

Plato's Parmenides Reconsidered offers a very accessible, detailed, and historically-sensitive account of Plato's Parmenides. Against the prevailing scholarly wisdom, he illustrates conclusively that Parmenides is a satirical dialogue in which Plato attempts to expose the absurd nature of the doctrines and method of his philosophical opponents.

About the authors

Mehmet Tabak is an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Politics at New York University. He has published several scholarly articles on Marx thought. This is his first book.

Reviews

"Plato is commonly thought to have developed a theory of forms early in his career, and then to have discovered irremediable errors in that theory later on. But, in this engaging book, Tabak demonstrates, quite decisively, that this common view of Plato is wrong. Plato's Parmenides Reconsidered raises crucial questions about the nature of philosophical writing. It is a bold and important book." - Ram Neta, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA

"[P]rovocative and exciting the 'Tabak interpretation' will be without doubt a welcome addition to the range of views in relation to which philosophers working on the Parmenides must position themselves." - Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2015
