Science in Ancient Greece
Science as a discipline began in ancient Greece with the famous Greek philosophers and their question, “What is true about the universe?” This book briefly introduces us to the most famous of the Greek philosopher-scientists, and their contributions to science, as well as Greek advances in mathematics and astronomy. This introduction assumes the truth of evolutionary theory, as the pagan (Greek) worldview leads to evolution.
Introduce this book following chapter LIX: The Teachings of Anaxagoras, in The Story of the Greeks.
