Such arose out of an attempt to avoid the absurdities implied by the.

Listening to this podcast (and now reading the chapter in your book!), I was struck by Socrates' response to the third man argument: that the forms are "thoughts". Parmenides dismisses this, saying that these thoughts would need to be of something - something out there in the external world - but then this runs afoul of scepticism.

"Scolnicov's aim is to provide a new translation of Plato's "Parmenides, with a commentary designed to show that the arguments of the second half of the dialogue, the purpose of which has long been a matter of scholarly dispute, make sense as an attempt to establish the necessary logical and epistemological conditions for Plato's own theory of forms and participation.

The activity of the older man provided the starting point of Plato’s philosophizing. Moreover, if Plato’s Seventh Letter is to be believed (its authorship is disputed), the treatment of Socrates by both the oligarchy and the democracy made Plato wary of entering public life, as someone of his background would normally have done.
