For a discourse on singularity in Plato


  • Luis Alberto Fallas López Universidad de Costa Rica



Plato, singularity, Platonic forms, metaphysics


We assume the problem of singularity as a philosophical category applied in Plato's metaphysic variables. First in his transcenden talists expression, which supposes the reading of eternal forms as singular entities: then, in its re-dimensioning in the so-called critical period, where our concept appears negatively, as a propitiator of apones, and finally, in a sort of an intermediate place, constituted above all from the ambiguous position of the thinkers final works, which support both the absolute identity of that which is metaphysical and its transfer to determined entities. Our basic idea is that singularity constitutes one of the most complex aspects and rich in possibilities of the Platonic theory of forms, to the point of justifying an evolution of the doctrine, whether it is from its point of expression or from the most profound of its thoughts.
