Description




Nothing: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) Frank Close pdf Ebook EPub free

Granted, the series format does not make for inclusiveness. However, in my opinion any discussion of “nothing” which does not mention the early Greek philosopher Parmenides starts off irretrievably wrongfooted. I’m not absolutely sure about this point, since $9.56 (or even $7.16 for the Kindle edition) is not close enough to ‘nothing’ for me to throw that sum away on what seems to be a fatally incomplete book. Nor is this merely an empty issue about failing to drop a philosophically correct name or two: one cannot understand the Platonic and Pythagorean foundations of math and physics without a firm grounding in their respective views about the status of “not-being” and the void — and those views are intimately intertwined with Parmenides’ critique. This book, which judging by the index, mentions Thales at least twice but Parmenides not at all, strikes me as not enough ado about nothing.
