9781930972117: The Route of Parmenides: A New Revised Edition with a New Introduction, Three Additional Essays and a Previously Unpublished Paper by Gregory Vlastos.

Mourelatos’ study of the fragments of Parmenides’ poem combines traditional philological reconstruction with the approaches of literary criticism and philosophical analysis in order to reveal the thought structure and expressive unity of the best preserved and most important, influential, and coherent text of Greek philosophy before Plato. Through philosophical, philological, and literary analysis, Mourelatos examines the morphology of images and metaphors in Parmenides’ text with the aim of articulating and interpreting the poem’s key concepts and component arguments. Relevant antecedents and parallels from the tradition of epic poetry, especially from Homer’s Odyssey, are explored in depth.

Book Description Parmenides Publishing, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New, Revised Edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this careful study of the fragments of Parmenides hexameter poem, On Nature, Alexander P. D. Mourelatos combines traditional philological reconstruction with the approaches of literary criticism and philosophical analysis to reveal the thought structure and expressive unity of the best preserved, most important and coherent text of Greek philosophy before Plato.The author shows how Parmenides deduction of the signposts and bounds of what-is critically defines the concept of reality implicit in Greek-cognitive vocabulary and in early speculative cosmologies. He interprets the second part of the poem, the Doxa, as a cosmology designed to bring out both similarities and contrasts with Parmenides own doctrine of what-is. The Doxa thus serves as a semantic commentary on the first part, the Truth. Mourelatos discussions of the concepts of persuasion, fidelity, opinion, belief, and appearance elucidate terms strategically important for interpreting Parmenides and contribute in the history of Greek philosophical vocabulary.This first-time in paperback edition includes a new Introduction by the author. Also included are three essays by him, as well as one previously unpublished paper by Gregory Vlastos. (The Route of Parmenides was first published in hardcover in 1970 by Yale University Press.).
