In this paper I will focus on Simplicius, in Physica 138,3 - 141,11, in which the Commentator discusses the Aristotelian expression «some people gave in to both arguments» (Phys. I 3, 187 a 1). These λόγοι are, respectively, that on the basis of which if «is» means only one thing, then all things are one, argument that leads some philosophers to admit the existence of non-being, and the argument from dichotomy and which leads some people else to admit indivisible magnitudes. Simplicius debates the dichotomy’s argument, about which he discusses the testimonia of Alexander of Aphrodisia and Porphyry, in order to demonstrate that this argument was of Zeno (founder of the dialectics) and not of Parmenides. Furthermore, he discusses the utility and the meaning of the argument. So Simplicius’ discussion is very valuable in order to explain Aristotelian text, to discuss a wide part of the philosophical tradition, and to give the Neoplatonic exegesis of Eleatic philosophy.
