Parmenides, um 500 v. Chr. in Unteritalien lebend, ist neben Xenophanes aus Kolophon und Heraklit aus Ephesos der älteste der griechischen Denker, von dessen Überlegungen wir eine genauere Vorstellung gewinnen können. Seine Wirkung auf die Geschichte der Philosophie bis in die Gegenwart lässt sich kaum abschätzen: Er ist, wie die Griechen sagen würden, der "Erfinder" der Ontologie, er entdeckte die Sphäre der Logik und gab als Erster eine umfassende Beschreibung und Deutung der empirischen Welt. Die von Ernst Heitsch vorgelegte Ausgabe der wörtlich erhaltenen Fragmente gibt eine neue Übersetzung und versucht durch einleitende Erläuterungen zentraler Begriffe und durch Erklärung eines jeden Fragments, dem modernen Leser einen Zugang zu den faszinierenden Anfängen der europäischen Philosophie und Wissenschaft zu vermitteln

The fragments of Parmenides : a critical text with introduction and translation, the ancient Testimonia and a commentary by Parmenides( Book )
14 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 183 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

The route of Parmenides; a study of word, image, and argument in the fragments by Alexander P. D Mourelatos( Book )
1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
In this 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
