Does Plato's "receptacle" have an exact meaning, like Aristotle's statement that if one displaces the air in a cup with water, and the water with air, one demonstrates a third place, where both water and air perdure and which itself lasts forever?

Pete Answers: The resepticle is a Platonic answer to the question about the idea. It stands alongside the view given in the Paramenides. Beware!
