Zeno of Elea

<history of philosophy, biography> follower of Parmenides whose work is known to us only through fragmentary reports from other philosophers. Zeno (c. 450 BCE) was the presocratic philosopher who devised clever paradoxes to show that motion of any kind is impossible and that reality must be unitary and unchanging. Recommended Reading: J. A. Farris, The Paradoxes of Zeno (Avebury, 1996) and Zeno's Paradoxes, ed. by Wesley C. Salmon (Hackett, 2001).
