The summary is too brief, lacking the subdivisions that structure eeraclito introduction, as well as the series of fragments within each section of the edition itself. A handful of fragments that criticize religious practices and beliefs give a sketch of these as notoriously irrational, while B52, B and B18, the texts selected for the conclusion, are interpreted as a final exhortation to a better kind of life.

Section 6, the longest, presents fragments frammentl with ethics, politics and religion, in a broad sense. Fronterotta translates this beginning thus: Section 5 deals with the nature and the functions of the soul, which is viewed within a physical framework.

The positive ethical paradigm is, in principle, open to all and grounded in self-knowledge. The image of Heraclitus.

Other relevant fragments B20, B48, B27, and B63 eraaclito refreshingly read as a critical revision of human eschatological expectations. The solar fragments are also included, as well as three fragments from Hippolytus, regarding which Fronterotta concludes with a judicious dismissal of eschatological readings.

Section 2 closes with a concentration on the theme of becoming and flux, including an insightful treatment of the river fragment B As a rule, the commentary does an excellent job at presenting the context of each fragment, without neglecting general and even minute textual matters.

Section 4 offers a systematization of epistemological ideas, which take off from the theme of the epistemic nature and value of the senses.
