The paper critically explores the theme of the not being’s aporia in Emanuele Severino’s philosophy. Severino’s arguments are developed to critically articulate, within the self-contradictory synthesis expressed in the proposition «the not being is», the uncontradictory distinction between the moment of the meaning (the not being) and the moment of the predicate (is). The three formulations of the aporia identified by the Italian philosopher in his works are carefully examined, showing how Severino’s attempt to resolve the aporia is unsuccessful: the paper shows the impossibility of distinguishing an indeterminate element (the meaning the not being) from a determinate one (the predicate is).
