Parmenides by Plato (Greek:Παρμεν?δης) is one of thedialoguesofPlato. It is widely considered to be one of the most challenging and enigmatic ofPlato's dialogues. The Parmenides purports to be an account of a meeting between the two great philosophers of theEleatic school,ParmenidesandZeno of Elea, and a youngSocrates. The occasion of the meeting was the reading by Zeno of his treatise defending Parmenideanmonismagainst those partisans of plurality who asserted that Parmenides' supposition that there is a one gives rise to intolerable absurdities and contradictions. The dialogue is set during a supposed meeting between Parmenides and Zeno of Elea in Socrates' hometown of Athens. This dialogue is chronologically the earliest of all as Socrates is only nineteen years old here. It is also notable that he takes the position of the student here while Parmenides serves as the lecturer. The whole dialogue is likely fictitious as Parmenides and Zeno of Elea lived inSouthern Italywhich was in the process of being colonized by Greeks at the time.
