The course will be focused on one of the most important results or hypotheses of Plato´s philosophy: the theory of ideas. First, a dialog will be studied "temprano" Menón, where such theory is not yet exposed, but which offers a series of elements that allow justifying its formulation and a theoretical device (the doctrine of reminiscence) which will later be integrated therein. Then, it will continue with one of the most read and commented texts of the philosopher: the Fedon. In this dialog, the theory of the ideas is actually exposed, in its most general and problematic version. The course will be concluded with a dialog where these problematic aspects precisely constitute the driving thread: the Parmenides.
