Book Description

With a new foreword by Scott Austin



'I hope that these essays may illustrate the thesis that all history is or should be the history of problem situations, and that in following this principle we may further our understanding of the Presocratics and other thinkers of the past. The essays also try to show the greatness of the early Greek philosophers, who gave Europe its philosophy, its science, and its humanism.' - Karl Popper, from the preface



The World of Parmenides is a brilliant exploration of the complexity of ancient Greek thought and science by one of the twentieth century’s leading philosophers. It reveals the great importance of Presocratic philosophy to Popper’s thought as a whole and shows the profound enlightenment he experienced reading not only Parmenides but the wider world of Greek science and philosophy including Xenophanes and Heraclitus.



Edited by Arne F. Petersen, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen.

4.0 out of 5 stars The World of Parmenides (Kindle) 10 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The star rating applies to the book itself. It does not apply to this Kindle edition which comes without Popper's table of contents. This means that this collection of ten separate essays has to be read like a novel. Tgere is no way of bavigating the book to search of a particukar essay. I have a hard-back copy of this excellent book but deeply resent having paid for this d-versuon
