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
