Anaxagoras: quotes, biography, philosopy – Anaxagoras eBook: we chosed to dedicate one booklet to the greek philospers Anaxagoras, from his role in “bringing” philosopy to Athen, his intuition about arising and separation of aggregates, and for giving a scientific account of natural phenomen. Also, for his theory about the flateness of the earth. That shows that every person who choses to be great, is also a part of the context where she/he lives; we should admire innovators, but also remember to think with our own mind. It is never a matter of accepting totally, or rejecting everthing, what one wise person says; it is about listening, readind, and making our educated opinion about what is said and shown.
“Nothing comes into being nor perishes, but is rather compounded or dissolved from things that are. So we would be right to call coming into being composition and perishing dissolution.”
