Thales of Miletus lived around the turn of the 6c. B.C.E. According to Herodotus he was semite. Virtually all ancient sources agree that he was one of the Seven Sages . In the first book of the Metaphysics (I.3, 983b20) Aristotle credits him with founding physical science. In fact, there was not much that the ancients didn't credit Thales with doing. Herodotus says he advised the Ionians on the site of their capital. He was credited with achievements in economics, engineering, geography, astronomy and mathematics. An old tradition holds that he successfully predicted the solar eclipse of May 28, 585, but this may just be part of the legends and exaggerations that embroidered his reputation. According to another famous story, Croesus, King of Lydia, consulted Thales as to how he might cross the Halys River with his army, and Thales, like the modern-day army corps of engineers, is supposed to have engineered the digging of a channel to divert sufficient water to make the crossing feasible.

ZENO OF ELEA (born 488 B.C.) Z eno was an Eleatic philosopher , a native of Elea (Velia) in Italy, son of Teleutagoras , and the favorite disciple of Parmenides . He was born about 488 B.C. , and at the age of forty accompanied Parmenides to Athens. He appears to have resided some time at Athens, and is said to have unfolded his doctrines to people like Pericles and Callias for the price of 100 minae. Zeno is said to have taken part in the legislation of Parmenides, to the maintenance of which the citizens of Elea had pledged themselves every year by oath. His love of freedom is shown by the courage with which he exposed his life in order to deliver his native country from a tyrant. Whether he died in the attempt or survived the fall of the tyrant is a point on which the authorities vary. They also state the name of the tyranny differently. Zeno devoted all his energies to explain and develop the philosophical system of Parmenides. We learn from Plato that Zeno was twenty-five years younger than Parmenides, and he wrote his defense of Parmenides as a young man. Because only a few fragments of Zeno's writings have been found, most of what we know of Zeno comes from what Aristotle said about him in Physics, Book 6, chapter 9.

Zeno van Elea
Zeno leefde van ± 490 tot ?
-leerling van Parmenides
-Verdedigt de leer van zijn meester in een boek.
Zeno laat zien dat wat de tegenstanders van de leer beweren, nl. bestaan van veelheid en beweging tot absurditeit leidt. Hij maakt hierbij gebruik van het bewijs uit het ongerijmde. De twee strijdvlakken van Zeno staan hieronder vermeld.
Zeno had wel 40 argumenten tegen de bewering dat er veelheid zou moeten bestaan. Twee worden er later door simplicius herhaalt. Het eerste argument die Simplicius gebruikt wordt hieronder herhaalt:

Wanneer een lijnstuk uit punten bestaat en een zekere grootheid heeft kan het gedeeld worden. Daar ieder deel tenminste twee punten telt(nl. de twee uiteinden) en daar de deling oneidig voortgezet kan worden bestaat het oorspronkelijke lijnstuk uit oneindig veel punten. De punten hebben een zekere lengte of ze hebben er geen. => het lijnstuk is oneindig lang of het is oneindig kort.

Argumenten tegen beweging Zeno geeft nog een tweede serie argumenten waarmee hij ook nog eens aantoont dat beweging niet kan bestaan: In de eerste twee argumenten wordt tijd als een deelbaar kwantum beschouwd en wordt de vraag gesteld of het mogelijk is d.m.v. een beweging een bepaalde plaats in de ruimte te bereiken. De laatste 2: tijd wordt beschouwd als samenstelling van ogenblikken. welke de aard is van beweging die naar opvatting volgens de tegenstanders tussen het begin en het einde plaatsvindt. In beide paren behandeld het eerste argument over één beweeglijk lichaam, het tweede over twee.

107. The Italian Philosophers
Those philosophers were active in the City State of elea in Southern Italy.Both Parmenides and zeno were supposed to be born in elea, too.
THE ITALIAN PHILOSOPHERS. Parmenides of Elea 504/500 B.C.
Zeno of Elea 464/460 B.C.
Melissus of Samos 441 B.C. (Samos in Asia Minor, the same as Pythagoras) Those philosophers were active in the City State of Elea in Southern Italy. Both Parmenides and Zeno were supposed to be born in Elea, too.
Elea was established in 540 B.C. for whose founding, Xenophanes wrote a poem of two thousand words to celebrate it.
It is said that this so-called Eleatic philosophy was founded by Xenophanes, who was associated with the founding of Elea itself (See the above). Copleston takes the same view about the Eleatic school.
For example, Plato's later dialogues, Parmenides , is often quoted as being not consistent with the above datings. In Parmenides , Plato portrays that Socrates who was at about 20 years of age met Parmenides, when Parmenides and Zeno visited Athens for the first time. Plato describes that Parmenides who looked like God with white beard was 65 years of age, while Zeno was 40 years old. Although Socrates' first encounter with Parmenides and Zeno in this dialogue particularly regarding its exact content may very well be a product of Plato's creative imagination, the relative ages of these three philosophers could very well be correct. When Socrates was 20 years old, that is 450 B.C., thus Zeno's acme is then 450 B.C. and in consequence Parmenides' is 475 B.C.
Further, from these datings if they were correct, we may bring down the date of Heracleitus' acme to 475 B.C., too.(See the section on Heracleitus in the Ionian-Italian Migrant Philosophers.)
