All this being so, 81 there must be as many kinds of oneness as of beingness, 82 and the precise nature of what concerns these (περί ών τό τί έστι) is the task of a discipline which is generically one — I mean, for example, concerning the same and the like and the other notions of this kind. Practically all contraries derive from this origin [viz. beingness and oneness].
