The student wanted to know the distinction between the cosmos and the universe This was an important question since these terms were used of by many of the ancient philosophers. Hutchinson began his response by first considering the definition of universe. By definition, a unicycle has and only can have one wheel. In the same way the universe can only be singular. This can also be seen in the word panorama meaning to see all around. Thus, universe is necessarily one thing that is all encompassing. Next, Hutchinson considered the definition of cosmos. Words like cosmetics, having to do with the idea of arrangement or adornment, are related to it. Cosmos is defined as an arranged part of the whole. Hence, we can think of the stars, the earth and moon (which in part make up a cosmos) as an arranged part of the whole universe. Ancient Philosophers were divided between the ideas of many cosmos or one cosmos.

Extractions: Version for printing Anaxagoras of Clazomenae was described by Proclus , the last major Greek philosopher, who lived around 450 AD as (see for example ):- After Pythagoras Anaxagoras of Clazomenae dealt with many questions in geometry... Anaxagoras was an Ionian, born in the neighbourhood of Smyrna in what today is Turkey. We know few details of his early life, but certainly he lived the first part of his life in Ionia where he learnt about the new studies that were taking place there in philosophy and the new found enthusiasm for a scientific study of the world. He came from a rich family but he gave up his wealth. As Heath writes in :- He neglected his possessions, which were considerable, in order to devote himself to science. Although Ionia had produced philosophers such as Pythagoras , up to the time of Anaxagoras this new study of knowledge had not spread to Athens. Anaxagoras is famed as the first to introduce philosophy to the Athenians when he moved there in about 480 BC. During Anaxagoras's stay in Athens
Extractions: Greek philosopher who correctly explained the phases of the Moon and eclipses of Moon and Sun in terms of their movements. He believed that the heaven and Earth were brought into existence by the same processes and composed of the same materials. In trying to explain the processes of nutrition and growth, he theorized that every substance contains portions of every other.

Extractions: (c. 500- c 428 BC) Anaxagoras, born at Clazomenae which is near Smyrna, was a credible mathematician with stronger interests in philosophy. He was one of the first philosophers to settle in Athens, but he is of interest to us primarily because of his reported interest in squaring the circle . Whether this is true or not, it sets the earliest recorded time that the squaring the circle problem was recognized as a purely mathematical problem. This is also the time of the formation of the three great problems of antiquity - squaring the circle, trisecting an angle, and doubling the cube. A brief biography: Anaxagoras was imprisoned for asserting that the sun was not a diety but a huge red-hot stone as large as all of Peloponnesus and the moon borrowed its light from the sun. At the ripe age of seventy-two he was condemned to death for advocating the Persian cause. Anaxagoras represents bold, rational inquiry. He represented the Greek trademark: ``the desire to know". His principle interest was in philosophy, where his main belief was that ``reason rules the world." He wrote the book On Nature , the first widely circulated book on scientific subjects.

Extractions: Greek philosopher from Ionia who gave up his wealth to pursue a life of study. At the age of twenty, he moved to Athens and effectively established it as the new center of Greek philosophy. For three decades he helped shape the thoughts of a number of illustrious pupils, including Pericles the statesman, Euripides the playwright, and possibly even Socrates. Anaxagoras's explanations of the Moon's light, eclipses, earthquakes, meteors, rainbows, sound, and wind seem surprisingly modern, and he put forward some provocative ideas that bore on the possibility of extraterrestrial life. He thought, for instance, that the Moon has "a surface in some places lofty, in others hollow" and that a race of humans dwelt there ( Moon, life on

Extractions: Contents Updated: Monday, January 24, 2000 Anaxagoras also maintained the existence of an ordering principle as well as a material substance, and while regarding the latter as an infinite multitude of imperishable primary elements, qualitatively distinguished, he conceived divine reason or Mind ( nous ) as ordering them, substituting Mind for Ormuzd. He thus invented the argument from design for the existence of God. He referred all generation and disappearance to mixture and resolution respectively. To him belongs the credit of first establishing philosophy at Athens, in which city it continued to have its home for one thousand years, without intermission, until the Christians stopped it. The system of Anaxagoras, like that of Empedocles, aimed at reconciling the Eleatic doctrine that corporeal substance is unchangeable with the existence of a world which everywhere presents the appearance of coming into being and passing away. The conclusions of Parmenides are frankly accepted and restated. Nothing can be added to all things for there cannot be more than all, and all is always equal. Nor can anything pass away. What men commonly call coming into being and passing away is really mixture and separation. things There is a portion of everything in everything.

Extractions: Well Worth a Visit Anaxagoras was born in Clazomenae at the coast of Asia Minor around 500 BC. He spent much of his life in Athens, where he was associated with Pericles, the leading statesman of the age, and with Euripides, the writer of tragedies. At the time of the two Persian wars (490 BC and 480 BC) the greatness of Athens was at its peak after the city was victorious two times and gained great prestige in Greece. A golden age started; the city became rich and prospered under the wise leadership of Pericles, who governed, by the free choice of its citizens, for about thirty years until his fall in 430 BC. "Pericles fell in, it seems with Anaxagoras, who was a scientific man; and satiating himself with the theory of things on high, and having attained to a knowledge of the true nature of intellect and folly, which were just what the discourses of Anaxagoras were mainly about, he drew from that source whatever was of a nature to further him in the art of speech." (Plato about Anaxagoras). With his fall of Pericles' government, Anaxagoras was urged to leave Athens. He fled to Lampsacus in the Troad where he died, an honoured guest, in 428 BC. Anaxagoras is said to have written only one book. As a follower of the old Milesian school he tried to revive the thoughts of Anaximenses in the post-Parmenidean period. Anaxagoras agreed with Empedocles that all coming into and going out of being is merely the composition and decomposition of existing substances, but he rejected Empedocles' Love and Strife theory, probably because there was no scientific reason that spoke for it.
