BERRUECOS FRANK, Bernardo. The New Parmenides of André Laks and Glenn W. Most. A Critical Note of Early Greek Philosophy, vol. 5, part 2, chap. 19. Diánoia [online]. 2021, vol.66, n.87, pp.153-170.  Epub 14-Mar-2022. ISSN 0185-2450.

In this critical note, I will present an analysis of the textual materials that constitute the 19th chapter, dedicated to Parmenides, of the Early Greek Philosophy series by A. Laks and G. Most. After offering a quantitative comparison of the texts in this chapter and the editions of H. Diels and A.H. Coxon, and after specifying which "new" texts figure in this edition and how they are presented, I will provide considerations on the concept of reception and how it operates throughout this chapter, on the definite overcoming of the distinction between testimonia and fragmenta, and on the advantages and disadvantages of cutting out the texts for the schematic and thematic presentation of its contents. Finally, I examine how Parmenides' doctrine is presented and comment on some of the decisions that the authors made on a few of the innumerable problems related to the textual transmission of the Poem.
