But to say that 'not-being is' is no longer contradictory when not-being is thought in other than absolutist terms: When we say not-being, we speak, I think, not of something that is the opposite of being, but only of something different. . when we are told that the negative signifies the opposite, we shall not admit it; we shall admit only that the particle 'not' indicates something different from the words to which it is prefixed, or rather from the things denoted by the words that follow the negative.
In the context of this existential-phenomenological analysis 'pleasure', however, is a peculiarly imprecise term, and Levinas does not indicate precisely which pleasures he has in mind. Presuming a reference to the sexual perhaps says as much about the reader as it does about the text: nothing Levinas says implies that these are not solitary pleasures (although, of course, there is a solitary eroticism) and the philosophical employment of the idea of nudity points to an experience which is not incompatible with being fully clothed.
The significance of this is a matter of fruitful dispute in modern commentaries,94 but at least one reason for it lies in the connection with the earlier Parmenides, in which a series of antinomical arguments from the mouth of Parmenides himself appear to show nothing except the impossibility of choosing between opposed philosophical positions. 95 In revealing this argument as, precisely, sophistical, the Stranger both routs the sophist and reveals the true meaning of the Parmenidean thesis. If this involves the bold assertion, ostensibly contra Parmenides, that 'after a fashion not-being is and on the other hand in a sense being is not', 96 the necessity to get clear about what we mean by 'being' and 'not being' is clear.
