ABSTRACT

Plato's Sophist is dialogue which is systematically discussing with being through practice of dialectic. So in the analysis of this dialogue dialectic and ontology is not understood separately. This paper analyze procedures of dialectic which is now yet controversial. By this analysis division in the preceding part of this dialogue is downward division from genus to eidos which is related to hierarchy of forms and division in the later part is one related to mutual relation of forms which distinguishes forms at assumption of combination. Particularly division related to mutual relation of forms is related to not-being. At this time not-being is possible to combine forms by distinguishing one form from other form. In this mean not-being which is able to distinguish forms is otherness. Thereafter this paper bring out more clearly meaning of otherness by discussing of not-being.
