Abstract

In this article we construct a mathematical/topological framework for comprehending fundamental concepts in Plato's theory of Forms; specifically the dual processes of: 1.

The presence-parousia of the Form-essence F to the particulars predicated as F , in analogy to their degree of participation to F as in 1
