Stone gives talk at FAU's Mathematics Colloquium

Sophia Stone

Sophia Stone, assistant professor of philosophy in the College of Arts and Sciences, gave an interdisciplinary talk at Florida Atlantic University’s Mathematics Colloquium.

She presented her latest research on Plato's dialogue, Parmenides, arguing that the objections presented to Socrates about forms in the first part, and the deductions in the second part of the Parmenides, should be understood within the context of Greek mathematics in the 5th and middle 4th centuries BCE. Discussion with scholars and FAU math and philosophy students followed.

Today the STEM sciences and the humanities develop and advance separately. Yet in Plato’s time, Greek mathematics and science were not separate from, but were part of, philosophy.
