Scholars of philosophy and classics consider the work of fifth-century BC Greek philosopher Parmenides, reconstructed during the 16th century from quotations and allusions written before the texts themselves were lost sometime during the sixth century AD. The 24 papers look first at the poem itself, then at its ancient reception. The topics include the astronomical section, thought and body in Parmenides, a genealogy of the idea of ontological categories, Aristotle's criticism of Parmenides in Metaphysics IV, 5, and megaric philosophy between Socrates' influence and Parmenides' ghost.
