in this paper we attempt to offer, first, an analysis of the one over many argument, as it is provided by aristotle in his lost essay on ideas, in order to see what light it shed on the distinction between platonic ideas and aristotelian universals. secondly, we wonder about the validity of the reconstructed version of plato's argument and we conclude that aristotle does not distort plato's thought. finally, we stress what aristotle's criticism reveals, not only about the main differences between his own universals and the platonic idea, but also about his debts to platonic theories.
