Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Parmenides of Elea: with Zenon, Parmenides is a main representative of the Eleatics. He differs from Homer and Hesiod in that he does not choose the Muse, the goddess of the right to be the protector. The dualism with the separation of aletheia (truth) and doxa (opinion) goes back to Parmenides. Philosophy can only be directed to beings, which, however, are only accessible to thought, not to perception. Since the non-existent cannot be thought of, also becoming cannot be thought of. (See Der Kleine Pauly, Lexikon der Antike, Munich 1979).
