    1. Riku Sayuj says:

      Philosopher Poet Prophet ProverbistHeraclitus is all rolled into one His fragments are tantalizing, hinting at a wisdom lost to us, but I am sure that he meant them to be fragmentary, so that all he does for the reader is a quick nod in the direction of a distant window, leaving the reader to make the journey, to peep out, and to make of the sight what he will In the sure knowledge that Heraclitus had pointed him there and whatever he sees there is worth interpreting Things keep their secrets He [...]

    2. Christopher says:

      Heraclitus FRAGMENTS come here in the original with a facing page translation by Brooks Haxton that tries to do to the pre Socratic philosopher what no earlier translator has done, make him a New Ageish wisdom poet in tune with our modern needs It is a disastrous experiment, and I cannot recommend it either to students of Greek or readers interested in the pre Socratics.The problems here are legion For one, Haxton doesn t use Diels numbering scheme, favouring Bywater s dinosaur era numbers, whic [...]

      A MESSAGE FROM HERACLITUS Never twice, so hardly thrice, will you step into the cooling waters and find the stream the same Pass on with gladness, not looking back expecting permanence Sink, immerse yourself in the ever flux Swim, when you must, with the tide Do not fight what you cannot change the Changeless Everchanging 9th March,1985 THE BECOMING The mightiest rock is withering away A tiny mound growing to a famous hill Becoming and becoming shapes the world Becoming and becoming takes away A [...]

      Heraclitus the glory of Hera , contemporary of Buddha, Lao Tzu and Confucius, was one of the first philosophers of Ancient Greece He was the one who said one can t step into the same river twice These fragments, mostly in Greek but a few times in Latin which are printed on the left side page alongside the English of the right side page , once were parts of a very often quoted book On Nature , which since has gone missing But just from the few bits that are here can be gained very deep quotes whi [...]

      Le estos fragmentos de Her clito a comienzos del a o pasado, con poco aprovechamiento Tras escuchar esta conferencia de Francisco Rodr guez Aradros sobre H raclito, y volver a leer los fragmentos, la experiencia ha sido mucho m s satisfactoria En estos textos que datan de hace m s de dos mil a os, es importante m s bien, fundamental el contexto, saber qu hubo antes de Her clito y de quien fue este, luego precursor Her clito, del que dec an que era un tipo oscuro, raruno, que acab sus d as aparta [...]

    7. JJ says:

      Enlightening and inspirational, one of few ancient philosophers who truly spoke wisdom For Heraclitus, wisdom, much like fire, is the very essence of the cosmos.The early Greek philosophers sought the substance which the universe was fashioned Thales, embraced water Anaximenes, tackled air, Anaximander, dived into a combination of hot and cold Empedocles developed the stuff to four indestructible elemental principles, while Anaxagoras is said to have offered innumerable generative seeds composin [...]

      Even sleepers are workers and collaborators on what goes on in the universe Opposition brings concord Out of discord comes the fairest harmony And a real personal favorite We are most nearly ourselves when we achieve the seriousness of the child at play Unlike most other early philosophers, Heraclitus is usually seen as independent of the several schools and movements later students somewhat anachronistically assigned to the ancients, and he himself implies that he is self taught B101 He has bee [...]

    10. Mohammed says:

      Interesting, but not enlightening Good points about change, skepticism, open mindedness, rising above petty worldliness and not being too deferential to authority are embedded in this book However, I feel these points are only to be found there because the reader is forced to find some content to justify the worth of these fragments.Many of these ideas will already be known or familiar in developed forms to any reasonably versed reader of those philosophers and writers who followed Heraclitus T [...]

    11. Billy Dean says:

      One star for Heraclitus The low rating has nothing to do with Heraclitus himself and everything to do with this translation Laughable.

      such clear thinking from such an ancient time makes me wonder why basic political structures didn t develop along reasonable lines much much earlier than they did.

      10Things keep their secrets.17Pythagoras may well have beenthe deepest in his learning of all men.And still he claimed to recollectdetails of former lives,being in one a cucumberand one time a sardine.36By cosmic rule,as day yields night,so winter summer,war peace, plenty famine.All things change.Fire penetrates the lumpof myrrh, until the joiningbodies die and rise againin smoke called incense.37If everythingwere turned to smoke,the nose wouldbe the seat of judgment.38Thus in the abysmal darkth [...]

    15. Kyle van Oosterum says:

      Heraclitus was the father of the aphorism, of the pithy and fragmentary expression of knowledge Most pre Socratic philosophers have been relegated to obscurity, but he is really an exception, having inspired philosophers from Plato up until Nietzsche Heraclitus believed that everything was made of fire everything is in flux and the meaning of truth shifts and fluctuates over time Nothing is permanent except change Everything changes by cosmic rule, as day yields night, so winter summer, war peac [...]

      Guillermo wrote this guy s name on our pizza box and said I had to read his book I guess some people think the beginning of the gospel of John is based on the first few of these fragments, which could be true, whatever, but John s version seems a little stranger and beautiful and coherent to me Think I found some Silver Jews lyrics in here though.

    18. Charles says:

      Tantalizingke a sunken ship A meditation, a Rorschach A work that makes it clear how much on brings of oneself to a book The fifth star s absence is a fault of history, not of Heraclitus himself.

    19. Shahzeb says:

      The best amongst the greek era A father figure for existentialism for sure Intelligently written and can only be intelligently understood A strong recommendation for those who believe that philosophy was only from Socrates to aristotle and nothing The first thinker to use intuition.

    20. Crito says:

      I m suspicious of the translation especially given that Haxton is a poet rather than a philosopher or classics scholar , but Heraclitus himself is astonishing, It s completely worth reading this in any form.

      C est un bon livre et tr s utile Chaque fragment est pr c d par le nom de l auteur auquel nos devons la survie du texte, et l oeuvre dans lequel il a t cit , ce qui fournit plus de sens des plus fragmentaire et montre les interpr tations d H raclite en l antiquit Les explications si je suis en accord avec elles ou non pr cisent le texte et parfois r v lent les menus d tails dont je serais autrement ignorant L diteur traverse les fragments phrase par phrase, clausule par clausule, souvent mot par [...]

      For those reading Haxton s translation and reading Hillman s intro A bad introduction to Heraclitus by Hillman and a bad free verse interpretation translation, skip James Hillman post modernist rubbish preface and find alternative translations to all fragments in many cases literal translations of greek words and fragments are adequate and reliable to the original idea than interpretations of possible meanings verted into contemporary free verse readings of Heraclitus The irony is that some lit [...]

    24. Aaron says:

      Heraclitus was my favorite pre socratic through my late high school and college years Twelve years later, when studying Alfred North Whitehead I realized that this little known philosopher was making a comeback in modern thought and that I should study up on him as much as possible Unfortunately, none of his writings survived but we do have these fragments which are quotes from other philosophers I was surprised to learn that his influence on philosophy had a strong current and that Whitehead wa [...]

      I m giving stars based on this edition and translation, not based on the philosophical content This is a horrible translation Why doesn t the translator use Diels Kranz numbering Why does he leave so much out of the original fragments In my Kindle version, which somehow managed to add on to the shoddiness, some translations were missing, even though the Greek fragments were included, the arrangement on the page made no sense, it was all a little bit messed up Compared to my other copy, the wordi [...]
