Summary/Abstract: The author analyzes the second part of Plato’s Parmenides with the aim to show that dialectical exercise that is carried out here aims to highlight the common ground of Eleatic theory of being and sophistic way of thinking - either-or logic. And that an imminent Plato’s critique of this logic opens up a new area of philosophical investigation whose starting position is the multiplicity of meaning of fundamental concepts of philosophy.
