ABSTRACT
Generally, Plato is seen as a monist philosopher. But this fact is true only if we take in account his written works. Since the Tübingen School reveals the importance of Plato’s inner-Academic teachings, the Plato monism is questionable. In this paper we try to find out if Plato is a dualist. We will see that, according to his successors, Plato spoke about two first supreme principles: the One and the indefinite Dyad. Moreover, some Modern scholars have proved that those teachings aren’t contradictory to Plato’s dialogues. In that case, the answer to our question will be positive.
