Overview

Building on the virtues that made the first edition of A Presocratics Reader the most widely used sourcebook for the study of the Presocratics and Sophists, the second edition offers even more value and a wider selection of fragments from these philosophical predecessors and contemporaries of Socrates.

With revised introductions, annotations, suggestions for further reading, and more, the second edition draws on the wealth of new scholarship published on these fascinating thinkers over the past decade or more, a remarkably rich period in Presocratic studies.

At the volume's core, as ever, are the fragments themselves--but now in thoroughly revised and, in some cases, new translations by Richard D. McKirahan and Patricia Curd, among them those of the recently published Derveni Papyrus.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Supreme Court Justices Brennan and Marshall dissented in over 2,500 capital punishment cases from 1976 until their retirements in the 1990s. Mello (law, Vermont Law School) scrupulously researches their opinions, sometimes drawing on personal papers and internal memoranda, to analyze the legal, historical, and philosophical foundations of the dissents, providing biographical material on both men and a wider theoretical consideration of the jurisprudential legitimacy of Supreme Court dissents.
