Hard at work on a bizarre passage that scholars have tended to overlook, a portion of the biography of Empedocles preserved by Diogenes Laertius (8.63-64) that associates him with democratic ideology.   I’ll update on it as soon as I can figure out what the Zeus is going on.  So that means it’s intermission time, until I have that luxury.  Meanwhile, I thought I’d notify readers that another commentary on Aristotle has been located in a medieval manuscript, thanks to multi-spectral imaging.  Click on the image below for access to the story.
