Copula Taureck I 82
"Is"/copula/Lycophron/Sophists/Taureck: thesis: Lycophron eliminates the "is": (only handed down by Aristotle's physics lecture) the Sophists had the main concern that unity and diversity could coincide.
Lycophron saw a problem in the most innocent statements:
For example, "Gorgias is wise", "this temple is white" are interpreted as expressions in which something that is one, appears at the same time as multiplicity.
Lycophron seems to have thought that the predication would add something to the subject expression: besides the Gorgias, there is now himself and the "being-wise".
