This paper proposes to show in a very short text how Plato activates a reflection that we can legitimately define as systemic. The Athenian philosopher is indeed convinced of the complexity of reality, both physical and ideal. Indeed, everything is an uni-many entity, i.e. both one and multiple: Plato explicitly affirms the identity of one and many. A one-sided position in favour of one or the other horn of the alternative does not stand the critical test. In short, every reality is a whole composed of parts: even an Idea is composed of Ideas and is part of a higher Idea. This vision has an ontological justification: the reality is constituted by a limiting principle that organizes a disordered reality giving rise to a mixed entity: it is an ordered disorder. On this basis we understand the processes proposed by Plato to analyse reality itself, such as the diairesis, and also the political and ethical choices that Plato proposes.
