Professor Walter Burkert, an eminent classical scholar, has passed. He taught at the University of Zurich as well as in the US and the UK. He was an early supporter of Parmenides Publishing and its authors. His expertise and kindness will be sorely missed.
Continuing with our ongoing effort to advance philosophical research (academic & independent), we have created a new research section. A selection of cited philosophy books from the bibliographies of some of our authors with helpful links for acquiring them.
We hope you will find it useful. There is also a form to suggest books that have been particularly useful to you as well.
Stanley Lombardo, translator and acclaimed performer of the Parmenides Publishing award-winning audiobooks, began the program by reciting the opening passages of The Iliad, first in Greek and then in English.
Readers of all ages and backgrounds participated in this unique opportunity to bring alive Homer's The Iliad, the thrilling tale of the Trojan Wars.
Parmenides Publishing celebrates the launch of the long awaited Plato's Parmenides with the author, Arnold Hermann.

Siendo, Se Es, the Spanish edition of By Being, It Is (published by Parmenides in English in 2004) is published by Editorial Biblos and presented by author Néstor-Luis Cordero to students and colleagues at the Facultad de Filosofía y Letras of Buenos Aires University. In the author's words:
"The presentation was a BIG success. The three young colleagues said enormous compliments, students were very interested, and in my short speech I payed homage to the modern Quixotes, Parmenides Publishing and Editorial Biblos. More than 20 exemplars were sold at the end of the meeting!"
"The book is very well produced; I noticed no typographical errors. It is a must for any serious researcher of early Greek philosophy and is highly recommended to graduate students working in the field."

Néstor-Luis Cordero's By Being, It Is is reviewed by Chiara Robbiano in Bryn Mawr Classical Review. Click here to read the full review. Excerpt:
"An undisputable merit of C.'s book is to offer clarity about important textual issues, combining an incredible conscientiousness -- which is the result of the consultation of an enormous amount of manuscripts -- and insight in offering, or reiterating, his own conjectures."

We believe that scholarly works in Ancient Philosophy and Classics should be easily obtainable and affordable for professors and students alike.
