I got this book to help me compare and contrast the Platonic Dialogue to the ancient Presocratic poem. The notes are great, and its a very good translation. If you want to dig deep into the dialogue, buy this book.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Barnaby Thieme on November 27, 2011
Format: Hardcover
This in-depth study should dispel the misguided belief that Plato's "Parmenides" is an exercise in spinning aporiae, or intellectual puzzles. Scolincov's penetrating analysis and exegesis excavates the battle of wits going on between these seminal figures in western philosophy, and illuminates their competing conceptions of what it means for things to exist. The metaphysical and epistemological issues at stake raise important methodological considerations, and in this dialog we can clearly see the profound influence of Parmenides and Zeno on Socrates' dialectical method.

I am grateful for Scolnicov's magisterial guide work through this extremely difficult dialog - it has deepened my understanding and appreciation for Plato and Parmenides considerably.
