Overview


Philosophy. Poetry. "Reading Magnus's HERACLITEAN PRIDE, one is reminded of Fragment 115: 'To the soul belongs a Logos that increases itself.' Magnus's approach increases the logos, and through that increase fashions perspectives from which to engage Heraclitus' philosophy. His is not a traditional interpretation but a journey that is simultaneously a piercing through. In that respect, Magnus's account truly combines two meanings of 'traversing' to fashion a standpoint of plenitude. I believe his success in thus traversing stems from a powerful and daring insight about Heraclitus: 'Previous analyses and impact don't constitute its history, it's not over.' For Magnus, the philosophy of Heraclitus is not over. Instead, he relates to Heraclitus in the moment when Heraclitus touches Magnus's own Logos and thus Magnus overcomes the danger against which Heraclitus warns in Fragment 72, for Magnus's account is never separated from that with which he is most in contact. This work is essential reading for serious inquiry into the great Sage from Ephesus."—Anne Ashbaugh, Chair, Philosophy and Religious Studies, Towson University
