Homer, Parmenides, and the Road to Demonstration

Benjamin Folit-Weinberg, University of Bristol  

It is widely agreed that Parmenides invented extended deductive argumentation and the practice of demonstration, a transformative event in the history of thought. But how did he manage this seminal accomplishment? In this book, Benjamin Folit-Weinberg finally provides an answer. At the heart of this story is the image of the hodos, the road and the journey. Brilliantly deploying the tools and insights of literary criticism, conceptual history, and archaeology, Folit-Weinberg illuminates how Parmenides adopts and adapts this image from Homer, especially the Odyssey, forging from it his pioneering intellectual approaches. Reinserting Parmenides into the physical world and poetic culture of archaic Greece, Folit-Weinberg reveals both how deeply traditional and how radical was Parmenides' new way of thinking and speaking. By taking this first step toward providing a history of the concept method, this volume uncovers the genealogy of philosophy in poetry and poetic imagery.

Open Access Journal: CIPEG Journal: Ancient Egyptian & Sudanese Collections and Museums

[First posted in AWOL 22 December 2017, updates 29 June 2023]

CIPEG Journal: Ancient Egyptian & Sudanese Collections and Museums
ISSN: 2522-2678
The Comité international pour l’égyptologie (CIPEG) is one of 30 International Committees of the International Council of Museums (ICOM). The scope of CIPEG embraces the representation of Egyptian and Sudanese collections across the worldwide museums community, and provides a unique forum for museum professionals and scholars who deal with ancient Egyptian and Sudanese heritage.
In 2017, CIPEG inaugurated the CIPEG Journal: Ancient Egyptian & Sudanese Collections and Museums to serve as a platform for the dissemination of information regarding the study, preservation, and presentation of such collections, monuments and sites worldwide. This open access journal promotes communication and collaboration among museums, museum professionals and others involved in ancient Egyptian and Sudanese collections around the world.
Contributions to the CIPEG Journal comprise papers presented at the previous year’s CIPEG Annual Meeting and its associated workshop, and focus either on the conference theme or on general museum work, collections research, conservation treatments, and exhibition planning, as well as archaeological excavations led by museum teams.

Vol. 6 (2022)

CIPEG Journal No. 6 includes papers that were presented at the 2020 and 2021 CIPEG annual meetings, held online on 13-15 November 2020 and 5-7 November 2021. Due to unprecedented obstacles to scholarly research during this period, the CIPEG Journal exceptionally accepted report-style contributions that highlight the innovative and imaginative ways museums responded to challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Other articles related to ancient Egyptian and Sudanese collections and museums but not associated with the annual meeting are also featured in the volume. (2017).


No. 1 (2017)

In 2016, CIPEG held its annual meeting in Milan, Italy, as part of the 24th ICOM General Conference held on 4–7 July.

CIPEG also held a post-conference workshop from 10–12 July at the Museo Civico Archeologico in Bologna, this time with a focus on ‘Egyptological Landscapes: Museums, Resources and Networks among Collections and Institutions’. A selection of papers on these themes, as well as contributions on broader matters of collection research, conservation, exhibitions, and archaeological excavations presented in Milan and Bologna are published here in CIPEG Journal No. 1 (2017).

Such tools belong to the broader field known as Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is probably today the most impacting and disruptive technology we are working on. In the field of ancient languages transliteration and translation, AI applications are just at the beginning, despite they are spreading faster day after day. So, who knows which will be the impact of such technology in the years coming. eBook - Free download.

Analogies végétales dans la connaissance de la vie de l’Antiquité à l’Âge classique

Analogies végétales dans la connaissance de la vie de l’Antiquité à l’Âge classique

Sciences : concepts et problèmes

Pourquoi et comment les médecins recourent-ils aux plantes pour dire et comprendre le corps humain ? De la plante au cosmos en passant par le corps de l’homme, médecins et philosophes conçoivent de façon analogique les semences, la génération, la nutrition, la circulation, la croissance et rassemblent ainsi des choses et des êtres qui peuvent aujourd’hui paraître davantage étrangers les uns aux autres. L’enquête menée à travers des textes médicaux, botaniques, agricoles ou philosophiques européens de l’Antiquité, du Moyen-Âge et de la première Modernité repère les usages des analogies végétales pour dire, penser, voir et soigner le corps humain. Le prisme végétal rend ainsi visible l’intuition d’une communauté des processus élémentaires entre différents types de vivants.

Scripta Antiqua

Fruit d’une large collaboration internationale, le présent volume, qui réunit 35 articles de spécialistes du domaine, se veut une contribution à l’étude de l’écriture de l’histoire dans l’Antiquité, en Grèce et à Rome, d’Hérodote à l’Empire de Byzance. À travers des enquêtes consacrées aux principaux historiens et textes historiques de cette période, ces différents textes donnent lieu à des relectures qui prennent en compte les projets historiographiques de chacun. Car si une idée traverse les diverses enquêtes qui sont rassemblées ici – et la diversité des approches a été dès le départ conçue comme un des traits du volume –, c’est qu’il convient d’aborder chaque témoignage en le replaçant dans le contexte dans lequel il a été composé, car souvent, il en apprend au moins autant sur le moment où il a été écrit que sur celui qu’il décrit.

Pontica Varia

Suppléments du BCH

I risultati degli scavi condotti durante 120 anni da archeologi russi e ucraini nei siti delle antiche colonie greche del Mar Nero settentrionale, come anche sporadiche scoperte fortuite fatte negli stessi luoghi, costituiscono un immenso materiale per ricerche su vari aspetti sia delle poleis di una periferia coloniale non-mediterranea, che era in contatto con nomadi scitici, sia del mondo greco in generale. In tali ricerche si inserisce il presente libro. Esso si occupa principalmente dell’interpretazione filologico-storica di testi epigrafici e letterari, tenendo conto – nella misura in cui l’autore, che non è un archeologo, poteva farlo – delle ricerche degli archeologi. Esso offre contributi allo studio del rapporto tra polis e città, a quello delle innova-zioni nella religione dei Greci del lontano Nord-Est, a quello della religiosità orfica e dei suoi rapporti con le origini della filosofia, a quello della ‘giustizia privata’ (diritto di sylân), a quello dell’organizzazione e dello status sociale del commercio marittimo.
