    plato-

    Imagine someone named antiplato says:
    "the number one does not exist because I've never seen it. After 1,1000 experiments, I have yet to observe the number one. At best, the number one is a conceptual invention, but concepts don't really exist like, for instance, this piece of paper does"

    A. how would plato reply to antiplato? would plato view antiplatos argument as valid and sound?
    b. what are plato forms, and what role would they play in his response to antiplato?
    c. would you be inclined to agree with plato or antiplato on this topic? why?

    Re: philosophy

    We can't help you with this, sorry. We don't do homework here. Even if we did, no one is going to summarise Euthyphro , Apology, Phaedo and Republic for you.
    That's a very difficult assignment you have. You're supposed to work out what Plato thinks about the reality of mental concepts. Is it too late for you to withdraw from that subject? In any case, that's Philosophy, not English.

    As Raymott said, we cannot help anyone with homework on this forum, regardless of whether it's English homework or philosophy homework. However, I have made corrections to the capitalisation, punctuation and spacing in your post. If you want to do well at school, you need to make sure that your essays and assignments are written following the standard rules of written English.

    Good luck with your course!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
