Phoenix Presocractic Series


The Phoenix Presocratic series is designed for modern students of the Presocratic philosophers. Each volume presents extant fragments from one major Pre-socratic figure or groups of figures. A Greek text with a new, facing-page translation is provided, together with an introduction or commentary outlining the main problems of interpretation and philosophical issues raised by each thinker's work. The volumes also contain English translations of substantial material from the ancient testimonia concerning each author's life and teaching, and offer selective bibliographical guidance. The series is now complete.
