Philosophy 20A Hannen 10/22/07 The Eleatics Parmenides There is only one thing Impossibility of becoming Obvious that there is plurality “How could what-is be in the future; and how could it come-to-be? For if it came to be, it is not, nor is it if at sometime it is going to be.” Change is an illusion, an impossibility What exists is a unity “nor is it divisible…it is all continuous for what-is is in contact with what-is” Get around Heraclitus’ arguments, is to say nothing can change, there is only one thing, nothing is stable Only notice things until don’t have them (health, air ,rest, etc) Argument of the Impossibility of Space: P1: What exists is indivisible. P2: Space is divisible. C: Therefore space does not exist Concept of space Zeno Arguments go beyond Parmenides Believes only one thing exists Insist that plurality is ridiculous “Nothing moves because what is traveling must first reach half-way point before it reaches the end.”

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
