Keywords: Arche | being | unity in multiplicity | unity of the one and the only | immortality.

The aim of this paper is to explain the influence of two different kinds of the search for unity on the conceptual development of this era of Greek philosophy. The reason for this aim is that the influence of the search for unity continues to shape the concepts in the following stages of Greek philosophy. This influence is seen in philosophy’s aim of putting forward the one and only being. For this reason, this paper is based on the concepts of arche and being in Anaximandros and Parmenides. The reason for limiting this investigation with these two philosophers is that the acceptance of the one and only being as a result of the search for unity has been formed o the basis of the philosophies of these two philosophers.
