Reseña del editor:

One of the most important Presocratic philosophers was the Sicilian Empedocles. He presented his work in the form of two hexameter poems, of which about 450 lines are extant, revealing a formidable range of interests, acute observation, and a firm grasp of fundamental issues in the study of man and nature.Empedocles' theory of four elements was crucial to later developments in science and medicine. He showed how forces of attraction and repulsion acted on the elements within a framework of cyclical time and limited space, and initiated or advanced major discoveries in astronomy, biology, and physiology. More sophisticated concepts of divinity, personality, and mortality replaced traditional mythology, and these concepts were founded on the conviction that the individual has control over his own character and intellectual growth.The introduction discusses Empedocles' life and interests, the content of the Physics and Katharmoi, and the relation of the two poems to each other. A new Greek text with apparatus is followed by translation, commentary, and detailed concordance, to give a comprehensive edition of this key figure in the history of ideas."With its careful and judicious editing of the fragments and its many fresh insights into Empedocles' thought, this work will be indispensable to students of Presocratic philosophy."--Alexander P.D. Mourelatos

Contraportada:

This book chronicles the life and writings of Empedocles philosophical activity between the defeat of the Fabii at Cremera and the establishment of the Decemvirate, including Diogenes account that when there were signs of tyranny in Acragas, Empedocles persuaded the people to put an end to their rivalries and to adopt a democratic form of government.
