The Art and Thought of Heraclitus by HeraclitusOriginally received in the context of literary theory and aesthetics, the philosophical depth and cultural breadth of Benjamin's thought have only recently begun to be fully appreciated. Despite the voluminous size of the secondary literature that it has produced, his work remains a continuing source of productivity. This book is written by author Heraclitus. Behind the superficial obscurity of what fragments we have of Heraclitus' thought, Professor Kahn claims that it is possible to detect a systematic view of human existence, a theory of language which sees ambiguity as a device for the expression of multiple meaning, and a vision of human life and death within the larger order of nature. The fragments are presented here in a readable order; translation and commentary aim to make accessible the power and originality of a systematic thinker and a great master of artistic prose.

Welcome sign in sign up. We are, let us imagine, at Ephesus on the coast of Asia Minor. The date is somewhere around BC, and we have gathered to hear the book or logos discourse of Heraclitus, son of Bloson. At this period books—such few of them as exist—are written to be heard rather than perused in solitude, and it is customary for them to begin, self-referentially, with an introductory remark about the logos which is to be read out. The jolt comes when we realize that we, the hearers of this logos , are being told that we will not understand it:.
