    John Anderson Palmer (2009). Parmenides and Presocratic Philosophy. Oxford University Press.
    John Palmer develops and defends a modal interpretation of Parmenides, according to which he was the first philosopher to distinguish in a rigorous manner the fundamental modalities of necessary being, necessary non-being or impossibility, and non-necessary or contingent being. This book accordingly reconsiders his place in the historical development of Presocratic philosophy in light of this new interpretation. Careful treatment of Parmenides' specification of the ways of inquiry that define his metaphysical and epistemological outlook paves the way for detailed analyses (...)

    John Anderson Palmer (1999). Plato's Reception of Parmenides. Oxford University Press.
    John Palmer presents a new and original account of Plato's uses and understanding of his most important Presocratic predecessor, Parmenides. Adopting an innovative approach to the appraisal of intellectual influence, Palmer first explores the Eleatic underpinnings of central elements in Plato's middle-period epistemology and metaphysics and then shows how in the later dialogues Plato confronts various sophistic appropriations of Parmenides.

  8. John A. Palmer (1999). Plato's Reception of Parmenides. Clarendon Press.
    John Palmer gives an original new view of Plato's uses and understanding of his most important Presocratic predecessor, Parmenides. Palmer first explores Parmenides' influence on Plato's middle-period epistemology and metaphysics, then shows how in the later dialogues Plato uses his own deepened understanding to confront various sophistic appropriations of Parmenides. Palmer not only demonstrates Parmenides' fundamental importance to Plato but also throws fresh light on the thought of both philosophers.
