'M.'s analysis is generally illuminating. She is notably successful in assessing the strategic functions ... Her analyses work more convincingly, I believe, where the first four sections - the consequences of the positive hypothesis - are concerned than they do with the consequences of the negative hypothesis. Constance Meinwald has produced an intelligent and well argued book, which deserves to be widely discussed - and surely will be. The style is clear and
spare, and her case is geenerally well presented.'
J.D.G. Evans, Queen's University, Belfast, The Classical Review, 1992 `Constance Meinwald's commentary on the Parmenides is both highly original and extremely illuminating ... She offers what I think is a brilliant reconstruction of the antinomies as presented by Parmenides ... Not the least merit of Meinwald's book is that it is accessible to a wide audience ... her arguments are neatly divided into manageable sections; and she writes in a style which is lucid, free of unnecessary jargon, and wholly straightforward ... On
the evidence of this book, her future works will be well worth waiting for.'
