But Plato’s attention to the double is not confined to his forms or his theories about the world of difference between appearance and reality, but instead, one might surmise, it is what either drives his thought or is what his thought appears to drive toward. Part of the brilliance of Plato is the way he maintains a marked distance or harbors a certain reservoir of ambivalence or reluctance to take a stance, which, covered by his rhetorical virtuosity, or by the virtuosity of his double, Socrates, is not always that conspicuous.

Finally, the subtitle of Being and Nothingness is An Essay on Phenomenological Ontology, and it seems very peculiar that a PHILOSOPHY’S USE AND ABUSE OF THE DOUBLE: PLATO AND KANT 29 Heideggerian-inspired ontologist should remain relatively unconcerned about questions of metaphysics or could believe that one could simply sidestep these concerns under the banner of dubious distinctions between philosophical disciplines. In a nutshell, this steadfast reluctance to acknowledge the way that his attempt to harness the double has turned him metaphysical is emblematic of Sartre’s undoing: While posing as a philosopher’s philosopher—while himself having inhabited a certain post-dialectical double, Sartre managed to build a massive trap for himself and then pretend that he wasn’t stuck in it.
