The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the role of peculiar elements of Aristotle's dialectical developments —namely, those raised in the Sophistical Refutations (SE)— in the analysis and discussion of the Eleatic thesis in Physics I, 2-3. The paper attends to some of Aristotle's preliminary thoughts (Phys. I, 2) (which are read as methodological considerations), and to certain remarks against Melisos' argument (Phys. I, 3), in order to find connections between such claims and passages of the SE, as well as the Topics.
