Paremenides

Paremenides (c. 515 ~ c. 456 BCE)

Elea

Nature

  • Reality is eternal and indestructible. It is a solid homogeneous sphere.
    • Everything that exists has always existed.
  • All changes and motions are illusionary.
    • If there were a change, something would have to come from nothing, which is impossible.
    • Sense gives us the idea of constant state of flux (changes). But based on Reason, nothing is changed.
