Interpret the fragments of Heraclitus and explain his fundamental doctrines. What is “the doctrine of flux”? How should we interpret Heraclitus’ famous ‘River Fragment’: “One cannot step twice into the same river, nor can one grasp any mortal substance in a stable condition, but it scatters and again gathers; it forms and dissolves, and approaches and departs” (p.53 Fragment LI). What is Heraclitus’ theory of “the unity of opposites”?  How does the unity of opposites relate to the doctrine of flux?  What is the logos? What is the Heraclitean One?  What is the role of “war” or “conflict” in Heraclitus’ fragments? Use direct references to the text to support your interpretation.
