Recalling the division of both 'being' and 'good' over the ten categories, he infers (I 8, 1217b33-35) that just as what-« is not o n e in all things, neither is what-is-good, so that there is not o n e discipline either of what-is or of what-is-good. £EIII 4, 1232a1. Bonitz 713b43-714a3; De Rijk (1980), 26-33; Kirwan, 180f. 32. 70 Kirwan (1971), 76-8; 200; De Rijk (1980), 26-33. 32. It is pertinent to realize that these labels are not intended by Aristotle to mark off two separate ontological domains.

Rightly argues for the rendering 'coincidental'. T h e Greek word is the perfect participle of the verb σ υ μ β α ί ν ε ι ν , litterally 'to come together', 'to meet'. It either means 'to coincide', and is said of two (or more) things that by the act of meeting come to have a symmetrical relationship, or 'fall to o n e ' s lot', 'come to', said of two things one of which joins the other, owing to which the two come to stand in an asymmetrical relationship. 6 5 In the latter case, what is συμβεβηκός is an attribute of something else underlying it.

That "the argument assumes that something predicated of a plurality of things is alongside those things and exists independently of them"; he thus seems to miss Aristotle's anti-Platonic point. 49 Again, Aristotle is anticipating the discussion of Book Z. 50 T h e decisive difference between Plato and Aristotle is that unlike Plato, Aristotle does not hypostatize this formal difference. what-is (το öv) and what-is-one51 (τό εν) are the ousiai of the thingsthat-are (and it is not by being something different that they are, the one of them 'one', and the other 'being'), or whether we must inquire what being-ness and one-ness are, on the assumption that they should have some other nature underlying them (υποκείμενης άλλης φύσεως).
