The Poem of Empedocles is a completely new edition of the fragments of Empedocles, which presents the Greek text and a new verse translation on facing pages. Also included are the testimonia from Diels-Kranz (for the first time translated into English), and a very full selection of frangment contexts, much of it material which has never before been translated into any modern language. The fragments are presented in their original contexts, which makes possible a fresh reading of the full evidence for Empedocles' thought. In this edition Brad Inwood argues for a new view of the character of Empedocles' philosophical work. In the introduction he makes a sustained case for there being only one poem originally, rather than two as has usually been thought, and explores the philosophical implications of this thesis at length. He offers new interpretations of Empedocles' metaphysics, epistemology, religious philosophy, andcosmology, and relates the work of Empedocles to Aristotle's critique.
