The New Theory of Time. New Haven, CT: Yale University Press. Tensed versus tenseless debates. Paul, L. (2010). Temporal Experience. Journal of Philosophy 107, 333–59. Popper, K. (1998). The World of Parmenides, ed. A. Petersen. London: Routledge. An attempt to read Parmenides cosmologically; it includes Popper’s classification of people like Einstein as Parmenidean. Russell, B. (1964). Principles of Mathematics. New York: Norton. Contains Russell’s version of the relational theory of time attacked by McTaggart.

Neither Popper nor Heidegger help explain Parmenides’ rejection of time. I will try to avoid such interpretations. Again, though, I must plead guilty to flirting with anachronism, for I will use some of the ideas in later philosophies of time to try to explain how Parmenides might be relevant to these later theories. See Mourelatos (2008) for more issues that concern philosophers. I am detouring around some historic issues, for example, is Parmenides really expressing some semantic aversion to “non-being” or “nothing” or “voids”?

The arrow is also often called the flying arrow, and a long tradition has joined a tortoise as a companion to Achilles, the swift hero of Homer’s Iliad.

Zeno’s paradoxes have occupied the attention not only of experts in ancient philosophy (KRS; Lear 1988; Owen 1957; Vlastos 1966).
