The fragments of Parmenides : a critical text with introduction, and translation, the ancient testimonia and a commentary by Parmenides( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and French and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a revised and expanded version of A.H. Coxon's full critical edition of the extant remains of Parmenides of Elea - the fifth-century B.C. philosopher by many considered 'one of the greatest and most astonishing thinkers of all times'. (Karl Popper) Coxon's presentation of the complete ancient evidence for Parmenides and his comprehensive examination of the fragments, unsurpassed to this day, have proven invaluable to our understanding of the Eleatic since the book's first publication in 1986. This edition, edited by Richard McKirahan and with a new preface by Malcolm Schofield, is released on the 100th anniversary of Coxon's birth. This new edition for the first time includes English translations of the testimonia and of any Ancient Greek throughout the book, as well as an English/Greek glossary by Richard McKirahan, and revisions by the late author himself. The text consists of Coxon's collations of the relevant folios of manuscripts of Sextus Empiricus, Proclus and Simplicius and includes all extant fragments, a commentary, the testimonia, a complete list of sources, linguistic parallels from both earlier and later authors, and the fullest critical apparatus that has appeared since Diels' Poetarum Philosophorum Fragmenta (1901). The collection of testimonia includes the philosophical discussions of Parmenides by Plato, Aristotle and the Neoplatonists, most of which had been omitted by Diels. The introduction discusses the history of the text, the language and form of the poem, Parmenides' use and understanding of the verb 'to be', his place in the history of earlier and later philosophy and the biographical tradition. In the commentary Coxon deals in detail with both the language and the subject matter of the poem and pays full attention to Parmenides' account of the physical world. The appendix relates later Eleatic arguments to those of Parmenides

Die Konzeption des "noein" bei Parmenides von Elea by Maria Marcinkowska-Rosół( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maria Marcinkowska-Rosól provides the first detailed study of the conception of thought and knowledge in the didactic poem by Parmenides of Elea, one of the most important early Greek philosophers (6th-5th cent. BC). She succeeds in providing convincing answers to some of the central questions on Parmenides, in particular the relationship between thought and being, the overall message of Parmenides poem, and the connection between the two parts. Maria Marcinkowska-Rosól legt die erste umfassende Untersuchung zur Konzeption des Denkens und Erkennens im Lehrgedicht des Parmenides von Elea vor, einem der wichtigsten frühgriechischen Philosophen (6.-5. Jh. v.Chr.). Es gelingt ihr, einige der zentralen Fragen der Parmenides-Forschung schlüssig zu beantworten, besonders die nach dem Verhältnis von Denken und Sein, nach der Gesamtaussage des Parmeideischen Gedichts und nach dem Zusammenhang seiner beiden Teile
Parmenides, Plato, and mortal philosophy : return from transcendence by Vishwa Adluri( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a new interpretation of Parmenides' philosophical poem On Nature, Vishwa Adluri considers Parmenides as a thinker of mortal singularity, a thinker who is concerned with the fate of irreducibly unique individuals. Adluri argues that the tripartite division of Parmenides' poem allows the thinker to brilliantly hold together the paradox of speaking about being in time and articulates a tragic knowing: mortals may aspire to the transcendence of metaphysics, but are inescapably returned to their mortal condition. Hence, Parmenides' poem articulates a "tragic return", i.e., a turn away from metaphysics to the community of mortals. In this interpretation, Parmenides' philosophy resonates with post-metaphysical and contemporary thought. The themes of human finitude, mortality, love, and singularity echo in thinkers such as Arendt, and Schürmann as well. Plato, Parmenides and Mortal Philosophy also includes a complete new translation of 'On Nature' and a substantial overview and bibliography of contemporary scholarship on Parmenides."--Publisher's website
