IMO : E
'one paradigm of political discourse' doesn't make sense
Only E conveys the meaning Clearly

one paradigm that could not be superseded in political discourse
though I'm not too sure of this...

For those who feel that E would make the best, let me clarify that, as a basic concept, GMAT never likes to employ ‘being’ as a modifier. In this case, it clearly modifies Plato’s work. So it can be easily dislodged.
We need an appositive to describe Plato’s work and B is the neat and forthright appositive in the given contest.

The two sentence seperated by comma need a proper conjunction

Hence A and E are gone.

D is awkward as it is difficult to understand who actually is superseding.

C. The historians argued that XYZ and that (IT) was impossible to supersede.
(the IT has no reference)

B is correct. Althought I picked the option D as the first pick. Parallelism is very cunning.
