    Aims and Scope

    The Strasbourg Empedocles papyrus published in 1999 added key passages to the fragmentary remains of Empedocles’ didactic poem The Physics. But crucial aspects of how the papyrus could clarify problems in understanding his philosophy have yet to be examined. Through linguistic analysis and close reading of the text, Tom Wellmann develops an expanded reconstruction of Empedocles’ natural philosophy.
