Parmenides of Elea ( - 5th cent B)
Parmenides of Elea (Ancient Greek: Παρμενίδης ὁ Ἐλεάτης; fl. early 5th century BCE) was an ancient Greek philosopher born in Elea, a Greek city on the southern coast of Italy. He was the founder of the Eleatic school of philosophy. The single known work of Parmenides is a poem, On Nature, which has survived only in fragmentary form. His ideas strongly influenced the whole of Western philosophy, perhaps most notably through their effect on Plato.
