Empedocles calls them the four roots, or rhizomes, rJizwvmata. When Hölderlin sends a portion of the second version of his play to his stepbrother Carl, he underlines the four elements in the passage, as though to enhance Carl’s education in early Greek philosophy (DKV 2:1098). The four Empedoclean elements are subject to the forces of mixture and separation (mivxi~, diavllaxi~), which, as we mentioned, Empedocles more often calls the forces of love and strife (filiva, nei`ko~). The mere mention of love and strife as universal forces reminds us of Hölderlin’s love of nature, as also of Diotima; indeed, the two loves are inextricably—if inexplicably—linked.

Empedocles takes offense. SCENE 5 The domestic quarrel. Empedocles’ departure,† without his saying what his intention is, or where he is going. ACT 2 35 Empedocles’ pupils visit him on Etna, first of all his favorite, who truly moves him and almost draws him out of his loneliness of heart; then the others, who arouse in him yet again his indignation in the face of human neediness, so that he solemnly bids them all adieu; in the end he advises even his favorite to leave him.

That Empedocles is a disciple of Parmenides becomes clear when we hear his words concerning the one sphere, words reminiscent of the wellrounded sphere of truth to which Parmenides refers.
