This chapter examines the part of Plato's dialogue Parmenides where Parmenides reformulated Socrates' position to stress the separation of sensible things and forms. It explains that while Parmenides will allow forms and sensible things either to combine or to be apart, but not both. It analyzes what kinds of separate forms are there and describes Parmenides' proposed four kinds of forms.
