The Postulates of Anaxagoras

Keywords

anaxagoras, philosophy, philosophical issues

Abstract

Among many points which remain controversial in the study of Anaxagoras, one of the most persistent and perhaps most fundamental is the question whether he is a clear-headed thinker with coherent theory and a proper grasp of philosophical issues, or whether he is a muddled obscurantist whose occasionally bold insights are attributable more to a lively imagination than to rigorous thought.
