Sample text

This succession and the titles themselves can be explained without difficulty: from Theophrastus’ De sensibus it is clear that Democritus treated in a rather detailed way not only the 32 walter leszl functioning of the senses but also the generation of the perceptible properties, concentrating mainly on giving an account of flavours and of colours. The next title, On different Configurations (or On the Differences of Configuration: Περ τ ν διαφερ ντων υσμ ν) introduces a term which is of importance for Democritean atomism: υσμ ς.

Of his contributions to poetics we know something from other sources, in particular, we are told of his admission of some sort of poetical ‘enthusiasm’ or inspiration (cf. 1–4). It is possible that this view was introduced in his work On Poetry. There are various passages which show his interest in Homer: in addition to a direct comment on his ability as a poet (for which cf. g. Plutarch and Eustatius, cf. 2–4, not in DK, and about the being out-of-mind ascribed to Hector, cf. 1, and passim). 39 The title On Homer is accompanied by the alternative title: On Correctness of Diction and On Glosses ( Περ ρ οεπε ης κα γλωσσ ν).

4), taken in the sense of inference from the evident to the non-evident (as the context, omitted in Diels-Kranz, shows), is in conformity with this suggestion. One cannot expect, on the other hand, that the work, which is in any case concerned with epistemology, could constitute a sort of treatise of logic, which is not likely to have existed before Aristotle. So the title should not be taken in the later sense of the term. As to the last title in the group: Problems ( Απορημ των), the Greek is in the genitive, but without the indication of the number of books.
