Chapter Summary

The final of the five chapters on the sun turns to the particular question of its eclipse. The text of the doxai presented in the chapter is well preserved in E, with just a few variants. Q leaves out a number of phrases. G reduces the chapter to four doxai only. On the basis of evidence, there are eight doxai, which are in this case not heavily structured, but can be seen as forming a number of groups. In the case of Anaximander there is an evident relation to his view on the sun's οὐσία, in the case of Heraclitus to his view on the sun's shape.

Keywords: Anaximander; doxa; Heraclitus; sun
