MEDIA REVIEWS

"The Strasbourg Empedokles is an exciting find and this is an exemplary editio princeps, complete with all desiderata for studying the new text. [...] The papyrus contributes much to the study of Empedokles, and some of it is revolutionary. The text solves some long-standing textual problems, reveals others that have gone undetected, and throughout supplies fresh evidence relevant to fundamental debates about Empedokles' doctrine. A summary of the author's most compelling conclusions follows."
Sarah T. Mace in: Classical World, Washington, 2002

"Die Monographie ist sowohl in technisch-papyrologischer als auch in exegetisch-philologischer Hinsicht gelungen und verdient uneingeschr nktes Lob. Die Autoren haben mit der Identifizierung des Textes, der Zusammenstellung der Fragmente, der fehlerfreien Edition und dem fundierten Kommentar, der dem Leser einen tiefen Einblick in die Gedankenwelt des Empedokles und in den philosophischen Hintergrund des Textes bietet, gro e Verdienste erworben. Begr enswert ist die R cksichtnahme auf den nicht franz sisch-sprechenden Leser mit der bersetzung des griechischen Textes und einer Zusammenfassung der Ergebnisse der Studie auf Englisch. Mit der vorliegenden Monographie hat ein bedeutendes Zeugnis antiker Philosophie eine angemessene Bearbeitung gefunden, die einen hervorragenden Ausgangspunkt f r weitere Studien zur empedokleischen Philosophie bietet."
Amphilochios Papathomas in: Grazer Beitr ge, Zeitschrift f.d. klassische Altertumswissenschaft, Bd.23/2000

"Martin and Primavesi have produced such a clear and comprehensive account of the papyrus, its discovery, nature, and relationship to the poetry and thought of Empedocles that this book can and should stand as a model of scholarly and pedagogical exposition."
Brad Inwood in: Classical Review, Oxford, 1/2000
