This chapter reconstructs Aristotle’s interpretation of Parmenides’ argument for monism. After asking how Aristotle conceives of the Parmenidean One, the chapter focuses on his ‘solution’ to Parmenides’ argument (Phys. , a23–8). This solution makes excellent sense if we see it as targeting Parmenides’ argument at B –5 for the continuity and uniformity of what is.
