Abstract

I argue for a four dimensional, non-dynamical view of space-time, where
becoming is not an intrinsic property of reality. This view has many features in
common with the Parmenidean conception of the universe. I discuss some recent
objections to this position and I offer a comparison of the Parmenidean space-time
with an interpretation of Heraclitus' thought that presents no major antagonism
