About this topic
Summary The Eleatic School, so named from the city of Elea in Southern Italy where Parmenides lived, includes Parmenides and his pupil Zeno of Elea. Melissus of Samos is also generally listed as the third member of this School of thought.The key doctrines traditionally attributed to the Eleatic philosophers include monism (there is only one thing), stability (nothing moves), changelessness, and the denigration of the senses in favour of the proofs of reason and argument.  Most scholarly work focuses on the individual philosophers separately, rather than the Eleatic school as a whole, but there is some discussion of whether Zeno is writing in support of Parmenides and how far to believe Plato's account of the rationale behind Zeno's negative arguments. Some discussions of Melissus also consider whether he is arguing for the same position as Parmenides.

    Every student of Plato will be inclined to admit that, among his dialogues, the Parmenides is one of the hardest to understand. The attempt to elucidate it has continued since ancient times, but even to-day we still lack a definitive interpretation. The first part of the dialogue is relatively simple; it is with the second that the great difficulty begins. Two questions are raised: firstly, how this part is to be understood, and, secondly, how it is related to the first (...)

  22. The Parmenides and the ‘Third Man’.R. S. Bluck - 1956 - Classical Quarterly 6 (1-2):29-37.
    In a recent article in the Philosophical Review Professor Gregory Vlastos has given an acute analysis of the ‘Third Man’ Argument as it appears in the Parmenides for which all Platonic scholars will be grateful. In view of the importance of the article and the interest that it has aroused, I should like to offer one or two criticisms of his conclusions.

  23. Parmenides and Plato's Parmenides.J. M. Rist - 1970 - Classical Quarterly 20 (2):221-229.
    In two of his dialogues especially, the Sophist and the Parmenides, Plato concerns himself at length with problems presented by the Eleatics. Despite difficulties in the interpretation of individual passages, the Sophist has in general proved the less difficult to understand, and since some of the problems at issue in the two works indicate the same or similar preoccupations in Plato's mind, it is worth considering how far an interpretation of the ‘easier’ dialogue can be used to forward an interpretation (...)

    In modern work on the Parmenides it is commonly supposed that in the First Part of the dialogue Plato's main concern is criticism of his own doctrine of Forms, or of some formulations of that doctrine, and that the criticisms have some sort of validity and are in some degree ‘damaging’ to the doctrine. It is thus often assumed that Plato's purpose is to make the reader ask himself, ‘Where is Plato wrong? Where is his doctrine of Forms, or his (...)

    The Eleatic Principle or causal criterion is a causal test that entities must pass in order to gain admission to some philosophers’ ontology.1 This principle justifies belief in only those entities to which causal power can be attributed, that is, to those entities which can bring about changes in the world. The idea of such a test is rather important in modern ontology, since it is neither without intuitive appeal nor without influential supporters. Its supporters have included David Armstrong (1978, (...)
