it was amazing
Read in January, 2006

I haven't read this book, but I've read the fragments, which are available online. Heraclitus and Parmenides established the poles of western philosophy--Heraclitus invented the word "philosophy," according to George Steiner, and that's not speaking figuratively. One represents a changing world, the world of poetry, and the other a world of permanance, with what we call change built in.
