A thesis presented on Parmenides of Elea, born in 510 B.C.E., serves as a muse for my studies in education. I find his fragments and specifically his poem, “On Nature,” to be very captivating as a metaphor for education and for life. Specifically, his work points towards the importance of being on a journey in quest of knowledge. I utilize his metaphor as a quest in a personal educational journey and also in an academic one that can be applied to the searches of others. I am interested in utilizing the writings of Parmenides’ work to form a framework for a philosophy curriculum for secondary schools. The thesis is centered on Parmenides’ proem-introduction, poem and its applications for applying philosophy to values clarification and ethics
