Pre-Socratic philosophy is ancient Greek philosophy before Socrates and schools contemporary to Socrates that were not influenced by him. In Classical antiquity, the pre-Socratic philosophers were called physiologoi (Greek: φυσιολόγοι; in English, physical or natural philosophers).

A History of Greek Philosophy 2: The Presocratic Tradition from Parmenides to Democritus, W.K.C. Guthrie All volumes of Professor Guthrie's great history of Greek philosophy have won their due acclaim. The most striking merits of Guthrie's work are his mastery of a tremendous range of ancient literature and modern scholarship, his fairness and balance of judgement and the lucidity and /5(5). These substances, however, can mix with and separate from each other and thus give rise to the world as we experience it without violating Parmenides' most basic demands. Empedocles was born in Acragas, Sicily around B.C. He was a philosopher, a medical man, an active politician, and a truly flamboyant figure.
