1. Yates, Deborah. Incorporating classical studies in education: Parmenides' fragments as teaching tools and specific emphasis on Parmenides' proem.

Degree: 2007, Texas A&M University

A thesis presented on Parmenides of Elea, born in 510 B.C.E., serves as a muse for my studies in education. I find his fragments and specifically his poem, ??????On Nature,?????? to be very captivating as a metaphor for education and for life. Specifically, his work points towards the importance of being on a journey in quest of knowledge. I utilize his metaphor as a quest in a personal educational journey and also in an academic one that can be applied to the searches of others. I am interested in utilizing the writings of Parmenides?????? work to form a framework for a philosophy curriculum for secondary schools. The thesis is centered on Parmenides?????? proem-introduction, poem and its applications for applying philosophy to values clarification and ethics. Advisors/Committee Members: Slattery, George Patrick, Jr. (advisor), Killingsworth, M. Jimmie (committee member), Loving, Cathleen C. (committee member).

Subjects/Keywords: ancient philosophy; curriculum
