Using cryptic aphorisms and evocative metaphors, Heraclitus argues that nature is not the world of stable, enduring entities that it appears to be. It is like a river or a candle flame, whose apparent stability is the result of an underlying process of perpetual change. Leonard Peikoff explains the significance of Heraclitus’ philosophy and the problem he posed for subsequent philosophers.
