In the thematic areas of (a) soul, (b) “seeing-together” the relationship of the math¯emata both to themselves and to the nature of beings, (c) the doctrine of ideas, and (d) the doctrine of principles, we have identiﬁed four ﬁelds of study for the dialectician. These four are addressed either not at all or insuﬃciently in the dialogues, and for two of them— soul and principles—Plato says as much. But that is not all. In addition, a series of very precise questions are formulated that are strictly relevant to each particular context, but in regard to which Plato immediately states that they cannot be investigated here and now.

Fragments of a doctrine of categories appear in various manners in these dialogues (for instance, Soph. 255c12–13, Hi. Maj. 301b8, Euphr. 11a7–8). 10 Finally, in the Charmides, it is said that determining for all things whether their ability (their dunamis) can be applied to themselves or not is a task for a great man (169a1–5).
