For Plato, there is this unique problem of oneness... that is, the same thing can be simultaneously one and many.

A perfect example is the body, which is one unto itself, in addition to being composed of parts. Also, take a Form, any Form, say, the Form of a chair. By definition, there is only one true Form for a chair. Yet, there are millions of those objects that we also call chairs.
