Sample text

M. Dancy, "Aristotle and Existence," p. 50. and so always makes an existence claim. Going further, we might say that 'έστιν', when put later in the sentence, never makes an existence claim. Let me make two points of caution here. First, the system of accents, being Alexandrian, comes later than the Greek of the classical period. Although it may reflect earlier usage, it is hard to tell, and the Alexandrian grammarians were not in an ideal position to tell. Aristotle's Greek was written in maiuscule, without accent marks.

47. 7 A. P. D. Mourelatos, The Route of Parmenides, pp. 49-51, favors this interpretation as a nuance, and I agree. However I disagree with his claim that taking 'ό'πως' adverbially thus rules out an existential reading o f ' i s ' (in my sense). 8 A. P. D. Mourelatos, "Alternatives in Interpreting Parmenides;" Alexander Nehemas, "Self-Predication and Plato's Theory of Ideas," pp. 97-9; Patricia Curd, "Parmenidean Monism;" The Legacy of Parmenides. Jonathan Barnes, "Parmenides and the Eleatic One," pp.

But, as every statement containing a determinate subject has some definite attributes and does not have others, even (ordinary) affirmations will imply denials, and so will assert both "is and is not". Hence monism rules. We shall see later philosophers like Plato and Aristotle keeping to this approach, while challenging other features of Parmenides' position. On account of the obscurity and brevity of the fragments, it is hard to tell whether Parmenides holds a statement to affirm existence and then to allow that existence be determined further ('S exists as a P'), or whether he takes all statements to be of secundum adiacens, possibly with an additional predicate to be added onto the subject ('S-P exists').
