N2 - This paper begins by examining the recent history of interpretations of one of Zeno’s paradoxes of motion, the paradox of dichotomy. It then returns to the record of antiquity to ask how Aristotle ‘solved’ the paradox and what decisions about place and motion were assumed in that solution. After appealing to Heidegger’s readings of the Aristotelian text, the paper then proceeds to offer an entirely original interpretation of Zeno’s paradox of dichotomy, which has important implications for a contemporary understanding of motion and place (rather than space). Instead, the paradox is read as a provocation to ‘see’ something which Zeno, it would appear, believed was ‘missing’, or had been forgotten and had disappeared, and to review all over again what Parmenides might have meant in his claim that being is one, singular, and indivisible.
