The Logos of Heraclitus ´ Roduces Heraclitus in her view the West’s first philosopherThe collected work of Heraclitus comprises passages Eva Brann sets out to understand Heraclitus as he is found in these passages and particularly in his key word Logos the order that is the cosmos “Whoever is captivated by the revelatory riddlings and brilliant obscurities of what remains of Heraclitus has to begin anew accepting help to be sure from previous readings in a spirit of receptivity and reserve But essentially everyone must pester the supposed obscurantist. I struggle to understand who this book was intended for Too theoretical for a general audience and too lackadaisical for anyone with a serious interest in the pre Socratics A set of bizarrely truncated musings on the Logos at the heart of the Heraclitus fragments Admirable for its attempt at brevity but confounding in its failure to expand upon the spark of insights it throws up It reads at times like a casual transcription of informal discussions rather than a composed argument or account It read like a bad translation The penultimate section tracing the influence of Heraclitus through Western thought is astonishingly shallow and uninspired Bitterly disappointing Read Æ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Eva Brann

There is much to be commended in this short book Brann offers helpful interpretations and reinterpretations of Heraclitean fragments as well as correctly identifies Heraclitus' Logos as a fundamentally agonistic relation hence War is the Father of all things that both creates maintains and reuires tension strife She correctly attributes features of Socrates' dialectic to core Heraclitean insights and acknowledges that Hegel must have recognized and utilized the power of his ontological paradoxesShe goes wrong when she counter intuitively argues that Heraclitus is incorrectly read as a flux philosopher and would be better paired with his contemporary Parmenides who famously claimed that All is one While I wouldn't disagree that Heraclitus stands in relation per the Logos to Parmenides' declaration I do not think the One of Parmenides is the same One that Heraclitus speaks of Instead of denying the flux change agonism strife that is at the core of Heraclitus' fragments she could have pushed Hegel's conclusions further and found Heraclitus' true descendant in Adorno and his Negative Dialectics which does not seek to reconcile opposites into an untrue unity
