This is the first English translation of Pilo Albertelli's seminal translation of the work of Pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Parmenides. It is a work that is cited and listed by leading philosophy scholars, acknowledging the importance of the original Albertelli Italian translation.


"One of the virtues of Pilo Albertelli’s work on the Presocratics is that it gives us an insight into the state of Eleatic studies, especially in Italy and Germany, in the years preceeding WWII. It also provides those not fluent in Ancient Greek, but who understand Italian (now English) a ready access to all of the documents dealing with Parmenides in Diels-Kranz, Die Vorsokratiker."
