An excursion is first made into the world of intuitive induction, which formed the inspiration to Parmeneides’ cosmological insights. Hand-in-hand with this is a unique explanation of the science of Classical Greece, describing its cosmology in terms of universal principles rather than forces.

Parmeneides’ poem, rather than being a dry exploration of linguistic forms, is shown to be a template first to understand the cosmology of our universe and second to navigate a path towards the ultimate philosophical prize of eudaimonia.

The author’s claim that Parmeneides’ poem and the dialogue need to be read together is based on a reading of the dialogue as being a factual account of the meeting of Parmeneides, Zenon and Sokrates. The dialogue is seen to be a logical rendering of the intuitional insights discovered in the poem.

The author concludes by demonstrating that Parmeneides’ dialogue constitutes the world’s first logical proof of the principle of paradox, and as such lays the foundations for today’s quantum mechanics.
