Parmenides Lehrgedicht / Hermann Diels, Reprint of the first edition from 1897, with a new preface by Walter Burkert and a new bibliography by Daniela De Cecco


Parmenides Lehrgedicht / Hermann Diels, Reprint of the first edition from 1897, with a new preface by Walter Burkert and a new bibliography by Daniela De Cecco. Edited by: Barnes, Jonathan; Ferber, Rafael; Rossetti, Livio (2003). St. Augustin: Academia Verlag.

Abstract

Parmenides may be called the founding father of Western philosophy. His poem on the unshaken heart of well-rounded truth and the opinions of mortals contains such astonishing depth of thought that Plato, choosing Homeric epithets, called him reverend and awful (Theaetetus, 183e).

Hermann Diels (1848-1922) produced the first critical edition of the poem. His edition, though a landmark of scholarship, has long been out of print. Walter Burkert has written a new preface for this reprint, and Diels’ bibliography has been modernized by Daniela de Cecco.
