This is the third volume of III Recensio - devoted to all the truly Heraclitean material preserved by tradition - or more precisely the first volume of its section 3 Fragmenta dedicated to the remnants (or fragments) of Heraclitus' book. It consists of a general introductory commentary on the philosopher's proverbially dark language. In fact this is a full scale monographic study of Heraclitus' highly sophisticated style and poetics, which are described in every minute detail. This description, moreover, is based on a new approach to the general theory of the literary language and underlines the exceptional rôle played by poetical figures and structures in the very wording of Heraclitus' protophilosophical utterances, a rôle which no commentator of his fragments can afford to ignore. Heraclitea III.3.A includes a CD-ROM: Heraclitea, Supplementum electronicum (HSE) with 1. Electronic (corrected and augmented) versions of vols. II.A.1 and II.A.2 with combined Summary, Introductory Notes, Texts, Abbreviations, Bibliography, Concordances, and Index. 2. Among other additional materials: Electronic versions of articles pertaining to the whole work and to texts of vol. II.A.1, electronic versions of articles pertaining to vol. III.3.A, an Audio track illustrating to the phonetic chapters of vol. III.3.A.
