Early Greek science: Thales to Aristotle by G. E. R Lloyd ( Book )
1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although there is no exact equivalent of our term 'science' in Greek, Western science may still be said to have originated with the Greeks, for they were the first to attempt to explain natural phenomena consistently in naturalistic terms, and they initiated the practice of rational criticism of scientific theories. This study traces Greek science through the work of the Pythagoreans, the Presocratic natural philosophers, the Hippocratic writers, Plato, the fourth-century B.C astronomers, and Aristotle. [The author] also investigates the relationship between science and philosophy and science and medicine; he discusses the social and economic setting of early Greek science; and he analyzes the motives and incentives of the different groups of writers"--Back cover

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Thales of Miletus (7th? 6th century BC) is regarded as one of the most important figures in Greek philosophy and science. In spite of this, little is known of his life beyond a few anecdotes, and none of his works have survived directly. In this volume Andreas Schwab for the first time examines a large number of references to Thales in early Christian authors, both Western and Eastern theologians. The resulting stimulating pictures of Thales and his ideas are analysed and commented on in detail
