|Bubner I 27
Ideas/The Republic/Plato/Bubner: it is no accident that the theory of ideas is developed in The Republic: (> Philosophy king).
Strange: that also the practical good should belong to the ideas.
Definition Ideas/Plato: The reasons of being of everything real.
Being/Parmenides: had forbidden to attribute a being to non-being.

Only in language can the concept of being express what it means, and also the concept of being is only meaningful in propositions.
Ideas/Plato: now only one step is needed to introduce the community of ideas among themselves: the presocratic ontology provides, as a matter of course, the concepts of being, rest, and movement.
