Quick Note on the Third Man Argument

The third man argument has no force if the sentence of the form: ‘The Large is large’ is taken to be self-predication – that is, a statement of that being large is a part of what it is to be large – and not an example of something which is an additional thing that displays the form Large.

This is mostly drawn from the Cambridge Companion to Plato – references forthcoming.
