"The latest writers on Heraclitus, namely, Gustav Teichmüller and Edmund Pfleiderer, have thought it necessary to preface their works with an apology for adding other monographs to the Heraclitic literature, already enriched by treatises from such distinguished men as Schleiermacher, Lassalle, Zeller, and Schuster. That still other study of Heraclitus, however, needs no apology, will be admitted when it is seen that these scholarly critics, instead of determining the place of Heraclitus in the history of philosophy, have so far disagreed, that while Schuster makes him out to be a sensationalist and empiricist, Lassalle finds that he is a rationalist and idealist. While to Teichmüller, his starting point and the key to his whole system is found in his physics, to Zeller it is found in his metaphysics, and to Pfleiderer in his religion. Heraclitus' theology was derived, according to Teichmüller, from Egypt; according to Lassalle, from India; according to Pfleiderer, from the Greek Mysteries. The Heraclitic flux, according to Pfleiderer, was consequent on his abstract theories; according to Teichmüller, his abstract theories resulted from his observation of the flux. Pfleiderer says that Heraclitus was an optimist; Gottlob Mayer says that he was a pessimist. According to Schuster he was a hylozoist, according to Zeller a pantheist, according to Pfleiderer a panzoist, according to Lassalle a panlogist. Naturally, therefore, in the hands of these critics, with their various theories to support, the remains of Heraclitus' work have suffered a violence of interpretation only partially excused by his known obscurity. No small proportion of the fragments, as will be seen in my introduction, have been taken in a diametrically opposite sense. Recently a contribution towards the disentanglement of this maze has been made by Mr. Bywater, an acute English scholar. His work (Heracliti Ephesii Reliquiae, Oxford, 1877) is simply a complete edition of the now existing fragments of Heraclitus' work, together with the sources from which they are drawn, with so much of the context as to make them intelligible. Under these circumstances I have thought that a translation of the fragments into English, that every man may read and judge for himself, would be the best contribution that could be made. The increasing interest in early Greek philosophy, and particularly in Heraclitus, who is the one Greek thinker most in accord with the thought of our century, makes such a translation justifiable, and the excellent and timely edition of the Greek text by Mr. Bywater makes it practicable. The translations both of the fragments and of the context are made from the original sources, though I have followed the text of Bywater except in a very few cases, designated in the critical notes. As a number of the fragments are ambiguous, and several of them contain a play upon words, I have appended the entire Greek text. The collection of sources is wholly that of Mr. Bywater. In these I have made a translation, not of all the references, but only of those from which the fragment is immediately taken, adding others only in cases of especial interest"--Preface.

Lettres et maximes by Epicurus( Book )

39 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"De l'œuvre d'Épicure, pourtant très abondante, ne restent que trois lettres et quelques maximes. Si les " pourceaux d'Épicure " s'adonnent sans limites au plaisir et si l'épicurisme est une morale du libertinage, la philosophie du maître n'en est pas moins un des systèmes fondateurs de notre pensée occidentale. Le matérialisme d'Épicure est tout entier tourné vers un bonheur sans détour - la Lettre sur le bonheur, la plus célèbre des trois lettres qui nous sont parvenues, en est la brillante illustration. Le bonheur chez Épicure passe par la connaissance de soi, connaissance du monde et des atomes qui le composent et, enfin, connaissance - et dédramatisation - de la crainte que nous inspirent la religion et la mort

Temps et destin by Marcel Conche( Book )

16 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in French and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le temps, par son concept, est en nous. Mais nous sommes aussi "dans le temps" (Aristote). Car, avant les jours de notre vie, il y avait des jours (pour d'autres vies), et, après, il y en aura encore. Le temps nous est compté. Nous n'avons qu'une durée de vie limitée, une part de temps. Or, c'est là ce que la notion de "destin" a signifié, originellement, pour les Grecs: n'avoir qu'une part de temps. Le temps, la mort et le destin s'entre signifient. Qu'en est-il du temps si la mort est un événement "destinal"? On montre que la condition pour qu'il y ait destin est l'absoluité du temps

Présence de la nature by Marcel Conche( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in French and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les onze essais ici réunis, bien qu'apparentés par leur thème, la Nature , ainsi que par l'expérience métaphysique qui les sous-tend et par leur visée, n'en sont pas moins indépendants les uns des autres. La composition du livre, plutôt que linéaire, est comme étoilée. La Nature s'offre diversement, et l'on tente de l'approcher de divers points de vue : méditation sur la physis grecque, sur l'infini, sur le temps, sur telle pensée de Pascal, tel poème de Wislawa Szymborska ou de Rimbaud, aussi bien que sur le cours incertain de la Nature et le risque écologique. Mais l'on reprend pied chaque fois sur le sol de la primitive évidence, pour s'engager à nouveau dans un chemin de pensée. La cohérence n'en est pas moins présente, par le fait de l'accord harmonique des diverses tentatives ou cheminements avec le ton fondamental."--Back cover
La mort et la pensée by Marcel Conche( Book )

19 editions published between 1973 and 2007 in French and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'on pense sa vie en fonction du fait qu'elle est fondamentalement finie donc en fonction de la mort. Or, on ne saurait vivre sans penser sa vie - une vie que l'on sait mortelle. De là le thème de la brièveté de la vie, de l'écoulement rapide du temps - mais ce sont les choses qui passent, non le temps. On ne cesserait de penser à la mort (expressément ou non) qu'en cessant de penser

Nietzsche et le bouddhisme by Marcel Conche( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in French and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au début du XIXe siècle, l'Europe découvrit le bouddhisme. Hegel, Cousin, Renan, Schopenhauer, Gobineau et Nietzsche l'interprètent comme un nihilisme. Tandis que les uns, les chrétiens, s'offusquent d'une sagesse d'anéantissement, et que d'autres, tel Schopenhauer, y voient la confirmation de leur pessimisme, Nietzsche lui oppose une sagesse néo-païenne, dite tragique
