The thought and beautiful prose in The Logos of Heraclitus are a delight.”—Barry Mazur, Harvard University About the Author Eva Brann has taught at St.

John’s College, Annapolis, for sixty years/5(16). In the above podcast, Eva Brann discusses her book The Logos of Heraclitus (). What is the world like, and how can we understand it. Heraclitus thinks that the answer to both questions is found in “the logos,” which is a Greek word with multiple meanings: it can be an explanation, a word or linguistic meaning, science, rationality (the Latin word is “ratio”), the principle of exchange between things.

What does Heraclitus mean by “Logos”. The literal Greek translation is “word” and it is sometimes rendered as “account.” He is saying that what follows in the book is an account of something timeless and truthful: an unseen force, not that different from the biblical “Word” or the “Tao” in Taoism, which reg- ulates and runs the universe.

The thought and beautiful prose in The Logos of Heraclitus are a delight.”—Barry Mazur, Harvard University “An engaged solitary, an inward-turned observer of the world, inventor of the first of philosophical genres, the thought-compacted aphorism,” “teasingly obscure in reputation, but hard-hittingly clear in fact,” “now tersely mordant, now generously humane.”.

The Heraclitean Logos * Historians of Greek thought have tended to begin by trying to read Heraclitus as a systematic thinker; they have tried to decipher a world-system in his work comparable to those of other archaic thinkers, The logos of Heraclitus book they have sought to reveal its place in a general cosmology.

A significant manifestation of the logos, Heraclitus claimed, is the underlying connection between opposites.

For example, health and disease define each other. Good and evil, hot and cold, and other opposites are similarly related. Anaxamines said it was air, and Heraclitus said it was fire, but fire was an expression of something more basic, and he claimed that the most basic principle of all was Logos.

Heraclitus of Ephesus, who lived in the sixth century, BC, was the first philosopher we know of to give logos a philosophical or theological interpretation. Heraclitus might in fact be called the first western philosopher, for his writings were perhaps the first to set forth a coherent system of thought akin to what we now term philosophy.

Heraclitus often refers to the logos as the mind of God, though it is not clear what implications this has for his theory. Probably, Heraclitus simply identified the logos with the mind of God because it is the controlling, rational force within nature. Heraclitus belief that the world has a LOGOS may simply express his conviction that the world is ultimately understandable.

If so, it is a conviction that he shares with the Melanesian Naturalists, Thales, Anaximander, and Anaximenes, each of whom also insisted. “In this extraordinary meditation, Eva Brann takes us to the fierce core of Heraclitus's vision and shows us the music of his language.

It is this law, common to all, this underlying genus which Heraclitus calls Logos. It is the hidden structure or formula of all things which lies behind the flux of appearances.

The unity of all things is expressed by the logos which hold forever whether we hear it or not, in a sense it is the speech of things, or of the cosmos.

His Heraclitus, however, is a lone thinker staring downward and inward, seated apart from the other philosophers. According to Eva Brann, Heraclitus looks within: "There he finds the Logos, the order that is the cosmos, the world without, whose mouthpiece and scribe he means to be."Brand: Paul Dry Books.

Heraclitus’s book began thus: Of this Rationale [Logos], which is eternal, men turn out to be ignorant, both before they hear it and when they hear it for the first time. The first known mention of the "logos" was by Greek philosopher Heraclitus who lived around - BC.

The idea was subsequently developed further by other philosophers such as Aristotle. The Author of John's Gospel picks up on this "logos" idea and claims that the logos "was in the beginning with God", that the logos "was God", and that the. The statement that men are unable to comprehend the logos even before hearing Heraclitus' discourse indicates that the logos has been there all along, and, as Kahn puts it, "can be his 'meaning' only in the objective sense: the structure which his words intend or point.

Heraclitus is thought to have taught esoteric ideas to an elite esoteric body of students – thus the cryptic nature of the fragments.

The fragments may be aphorisms to be remembered by students but there is some evidence (from the writings of Sextus Empiricus in the 3 rd century C.E.) that there was a specific sequence as if in book form.

The teachings of Heraclitus have been depicted as a Location: Meigs County, OHIO, United States. Since the logos is only the physis in the sense of being the unifier in nature, perhaps fire, its material manifestation, is the physis in the sense of the material from which everything arose.

But though it is tempting to believe that Heraclitus was a material monist with fire as his physis, it seems unlikely. Heraclitus of Ephesus (; Greek: Ἡράκλειτος ὁ Ἐφέσιος, Hērákleitos ho Ephésios; c.

Heraclitus is recorded as having written a single book, "On Nature", divided into three discourses, one on the universe, another on politics and a third on book was deposited or stored in the great Temple of Artemis in Ephesus (as were many other treasures and books of the time) and made available to visitors for several centuries after Heraclitus' death.

The primordial Logos is "expressly not the voice of a human being," he maintains. Our human task is to "hearken" in humble silence to what the primordial Logos "says" and respond in word and art, and this is the teaching of Heraclitus on the unique homologein, or "correspondence" (Entsprechung), of human beings in relation to the Logos.

The opening of Heraclitus' book refers to a “logos which holds forever.”[3] There is disagreement about exactly what Heraclitus meant by using the term logos, but it is clear from 22B1 and B2 as well as B50 and other fragments that he refers to an objective law-like principle that governs the cosmos, and which it is possible (but difficult.
