Parmenides fragments in Heidegger


Fragment Greek Heidegger Source
5 τὸ γὰρ αὐτὸ νοεῖν ἔστιν τε καὶ εἶναι but thinking and Being are the same. [ItM 151]
6 χρὴ τὸ λέγειν τε νοεῖν τ’ἐὸν ἔμμεναι· ἔστι γὰρ εἶναι, μηδὲν δ᾽ οὐκ ἔστιν· τά σ᾽ ἐγὼ φράζεσθαι ἄνωγα. πρώτης γάρ σ᾽ ἀφ᾽ ὁδοῦ ταύτης διζήσιος <εἴρξω>, αὐτὰρ ἔπειτ᾽ ἀπὸ τῆς, ἣν δὴ βροτοὶ εἰδότες οὐδὲν πλάττονται, δίκρανοι· ἀμηχανίη γὰρ ἐν αὐτῶν στήθεσιν ἰθύνει πλακτὸν νόον· οἱ δὲ φοροῦνται κωφοὶ ὁμῶς τυφλοί τε, τεθηπότες, ἄκριτα φῦλα, οἷς τὸ πέλειν τε καὶ οὐκ εἶναι ταὐτὸν νενόμισται κοὐ ταὐτόν, πάντων δὲ παλίντροπός ἐστι κέλευθος. needful is λέγειν as well as apprehending, namely, the being <das Seiend> in its Being [ItM 156], [ItM 188], [PS 164]
7 [ItM 193]
8 μόνος δ’ἔτι μῦθος ὁδοῖο
λείπεται ὡς ἔστιν· ταύτηι δ’ἐπὶ σήματ’ ἔασι
πολλὰ μάλ,’ ὡς ἀγένητον ἐὸν καὶ ἀνώλεθρόν ἐστιν,
ἔστι γὰρ οὐλομελές τε καὶ ἀτρεμὲς ἠδ’ ἀτέλεστον,
οὐδέ ποτ’ ἦν οὐδ’ ἔσται, ἐπεὶ νῦν ἔστιν ὁμοῦ πᾶν,
ἕν, συνεχές·
But there remains solely the saga of the way
(along which there opens up) how it stands with to-be <sein>;
for along this (way) many indications of it are given;
how Being without genesis and without decay,
complete, standing fully there alone,
without trembling in itself and not at all in need of finishing;
nor was it before, nor will it be someday,
for as the present, it is all-at-once, unique unifying united
[ItM 105], [ItM 154]
13 πρώτιστον μὲν Ἔρωτα θεῶν μητίσατο πάντων. As first, certainly, Eros, of all the gods, (she) was devised. [H 101]
