The research project here proposed is comprised as part of the postdoctoral research project currently underway Saying Truth. On Heidegger, Plato, and aletheia (Process 2011/06426-4 FAPESP) developed in the Department of Philosophy FFLCH of the University of São Paulo (USP) under Prof. Dr. Marco Aurélio Werle supervision. This former project, for being carried out abroad, aims primarily 1) performing a reading of "truth" in Heidegger as alétheia according to the transformations occurred in contemporary thought, and, consequently, offering an analysis on "truth" of the heideggerian perspective reception and impact in contemporary philosophy. From the perspective of the ontological value of discourse, this project is opened to the reflections on truth and saying from other recent authors, especially is attending to the parrhesia concept of the final Foucault. In today's philosophical panorama, considering the tension among the post-heideggerian phenomenological hermeneutics and the poststructuralist philosophies of difference and otherness, both alétheia and parrhesia offer alternatives against the dominant notion of truth as "agreement" -adequatio, correspondentia, convenientia-, and they are opened up, besides to the scope of scientific knowledge, to other areas of culture, thus having an impact on art, politics, history, etc& In this context, our project BEPE analyzes the conditions of the contemporary return of alétheia and parrhesia in Heidegger and Foucault, considering saying truth as an action. Accordingly, a fruitful encounter between both proposals is offered as well as an assessing, in both thoughts, of the significance of Plato and Platonism in the history of philosophy. The second objective of this research project is 2) to assess the impact on Heidegger's interpretation of Plato of the recently appeared volume of Heidegger seminars on Plato taught in 1930/31 and 1932 and dedicated to the dialogues Parmenides and Phaedrus (Seminare: Platon - Aristoteles - Augustinus, Mark Michalski (Ed.), Gesamtausgabe, Band 83, 2012), also taking into consideration the latest literature on this subject.
