Title PARMENIDES AND SPECIAL RELATIVITY

Details
Parmenides is led by logic to postulate a continuous, changeless but bounded, ungenerated and indestructible being. It has frequently been suggested that Einstein's special relativity theory seems, by logical necessity, to lead to a similarly continuous, changeless 'bloc universe' of four dimensional space time. Has Einstein vindicated Parmenides ? This paper examines relevant arguments.
