Papers from the Symposium Philosophiae Antiquae Tertium Myconense held in Mykonos, 6th - 13th July 2003. The theme was Empedocles' conception of Kosmos, and contributors look at his theory on the foundation, order, and development of the world; a basic reassessment of the Cosmic Cycle; the physical, metaphysical and religious dimensions of his theory; and the substantial new piece of Empedoclean evidence provided by the Strasbourg Papyrus. Contributors: Sir Anthony Kenny; Glenn Most; Jean Bollack; Rene Nünlist; Richard Janko; Patricia Curd; Richard McKirahan; Apostolos Pierris; Daniel Graham; Oliver Primavesi; André Laks; Catherine Osborne; Angelo Tonelli; David Sedley; Laura Gemelli-Marciano.
