Description:

This volume provides a comprehensive exposition of the arguments of the Presocratics--the founding fathers of the Western philosophical tradition and the first masters of rational thought. While previous books have concentrated on historical and philological issues,The Presocratic Philosophersfocuses on the philosophical content of Presocratic ideas and arguments, offering a rigorous assessment of their contribution to philosophical thought. The book considers all the main thinkers from Thales to the Sophists and pays particular attention to Parmenides, Zeno, Anaxagoras and Democritus.
