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.

    Prenant sérieusement en compte les travaux de Luc Brisson effectués sur le Parménide de Platon et acceptant leur conclusion qui veut que le Poème de Parménide ne renvoie pas à un être métaphysique mais à un être physique , cet article cherche à pousser cette analyse jusqu’à son terme ultime. Pour ce faire, nous nous interrogerons d’abord sur la réception actuelle de la pensée de Parménide. Ensuite, nous évoquerons les traces antérieures au néoplatonisme du Poème et de son auteur en (...)

    The Parmenides is arguably the pivotal text for understanding the Platonic corpus as a whole. I offer a critical analysis that takes as its key the closely constructed dramatic context and mimetic irony of the dialogue. Read with these in view, the contradictory characterizations of the "one" in the hypotheses dissolve and reform as stages in a systematic response to the objections that Parmenides earlier posed to the young Socrates' notions of forms and participation, potentially liberating Socrates from his dependence (...)

    There is a mystery at the heart of Plato's Parmenides. In the first part, Parmenides criticizes what is widely regarded as Plato's mature theory of Forms, and in the second, he promises to explain how the Forms can be saved from these criticisms. Ever since the dialogue was written, scholars have struggled to determine how the two parts of the work fit together. Did Plato mean us to abandon, keep or modify the theory of Forms, on the strength of Parmenides' (...)

  8. Parmenides and Presocratic Philosophy.John Palmer - 2009 - Oxford University Press UK.
    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 (...)

    Zeno of Elea, despite being among the most important of the Pre-Socratic philosophers, is frequently overlooked by philosophers and scientists alike in modern times. Zeno of Elea’s arguments on have not only been an impetus for the most important scientific and mathematical theories in human history, his arguments still serve as a basis for modern problems and theoretical speculations. This is a study of his arguments on motion, the purpose they have served in the history of science, and modern applications (...)

    This paper is an attempt to show that, by taking the Cartesian idea of "clear and distinct" perceptions to heart, the real solving of the Paradox can occur. Through the lens of "clear and distinct," it is eventually shown that the key to unraveling the Paradox lies in the way Zeno has conceived of the act of motion. All other attempts at solving the Paradox accept Zeno's misconception of the act of motion and try to solve the Paradox by manipulating (...)

    This dissertation presents a pedagogical reading of Parmenides' poem; the poem is read as an instruction of the youth by the goddess on how to think to eon properly. It reviews and critiques the main interpretations of the estin in Fragment B2. Mourelatos' conveyer sense of estin, however, is supported and transformed in order to show that the path of estin transports the thought of the youth toward to eon by the goddess' instruction. Within this ontological education, thought is turned (...)

  20. Parmenidean Irony.John F. Newell - 2002 - Dissertation, University of Pittsburgh
    Numerous studies in the past fifty years have shown that Parmenides made extensive use of Homeric vocabulary in the composition of his poem. These studies, however, have generally regarded the Homeric touches as embellishments, and as not having significance for the meaning of the poem. This disposition apparently arose from a long-standing belief that ancient sources were unanimous in condemning Parmenides' poetic skills, and, perhaps, from an eagerness to get beyond the poetry so as to grapple directly with the philosophic (...)

  27. The Mythological Dimension of Parmenides' Thought.Max J. Latona - 2001 - Dissertation, Boston College
    This dissertation attempts to identify the presence and role of myth in Parmenides' philosophical poem. It is argued that the myths of the poem are neither extrinsic to, nor entirely in service of, Parmenides' reasoned account. By virtue of the traditional significance which they possess, the myths of the poem determine both the form and content of Parmenides' philosophical presentation, with the result that Parmenides' philosophy should be viewed as an attempt to sustain traditional tales with philosophical argumentation. Primarily two (...)

    Various arguments have been put forward to show that Zeno-like paradoxes are still with us. A particularly interesting one involves a cube composed of colored slabs that geometrically decrease in thickness. We first point out that this argument has already been nullified by Paul Benacerraf. Then we show that nevertheless a further problem remains, one that withstands Benacerraf s critique. We explain that the new problem is isomorphic to two other Zeno-like predicaments: a problem described by Alper and Bridger in (...)
