For an in depth critique of what may be claimed, as European originated thought, advisably a reading of the works, of early or ancient philosophers (from the Milesian philosophers-Thales, Anaximander, Anaximenes, to Pythagoras, Heraclitus, Parmenides, Zeno, Empedocles, Anaxagoras, is suggested.
A fragment by Anaximenes of Miletus, known for elevating air to the principal originary element, reads: 'since we come into being by an efflux from this (air), it is bound to be both non-limited and rich so that it never fails' (Anaximenes of Miletus, 1948: 19).
Por ejemplo, Tales argumento que el agua era la fuente de todas las cosas; Anaximenes situo al aire como el centro de todas las cosas, y Democrito desarrollo una teoria atomica del universo.
O estudante de filosofia chega a desanimar quando le que "Thales disse que tudo era agua", mais ainda quando seus estudos avancam nos filosofos pre-socraticos e lhe e dito que tudo no universo e composto de terra (Xenofanes), de ar (Anaximenes), de fogo (Heraclito) ou de todos juntos (Empedocles).
