Did Plato abandon, or modify, the 'Theory of Forms' in later life? In the 'Phaedo', 'Symposium' and 'Republic' it is agreed that Plato held that universals exist.

"This edition, intended for the student and general reader, is accompanied by Allen's notes and introduction. The Republic is, of course, many things: metaphysics and epistemology, moral psychology and ethics, educational theory and aesthetics, and poetry and eschatology. In his introduction, Allen takes up its threshold question - the political - and argues that its particular formulation by Plato had a direct and profound influence on the Founding Fathers and the development of American constitutional law."--Jacket

Studies in Plato's Metaphysics (RLE: Plato) by Reginald E Allen( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Did Plato abandon, or sharply modify, the Theory of Forms in later life? In the Phaedo, Symposium, and Republic it is generally agreed that Plato held that universals exist. But in Parmenides, he subjected that theory to criticism. If the criticism were valid, and Plato knew so, then the Parmenides marks a turning point in his thought. If, however, Plato became aware that there are radical differences in the logical behaviour of concepts, and the later dialogues are a record of his attempt to analyse those differences, then Plato's thought can be said to have moved in a new and vitally importa
