Thales of Miletus 624BC: was born. 585BC: predicted a solar eclipse. 547BC: died.

Thales of Miletus The Greek philosopher, Thales was born around 624BC, the son of Examines and Cleobuline. While some believe his lineage was Phoenician, most consider him to be Milesian (Miletus, Asia Minor, now Turkey). He came from a distinguished family. :

1)He was an engineer, scientist, mathematician, and philosopher, the first natural philosopher in the Milesian School. 2)He was an engineer, scientist, mathematician, were visible from different locations on Earth. known by this time, solar eclipses were harder to predict, since they. 3)There are reports that Thales predicted an eclipse of the Sun in 585 BC. While the 19 year cycle for Lunar eclipses was well :

Some impression and highlights of his life and work follow: 1) Thales of Miletus was the first known Greek philosopher, scientist and mathematician. Some consider him to be the teacher of Pythagoras, though it may be only that he advised Pythagoras to travel to Egypt and Chaldea. 2)From Eudemons of Rhodes (fl ca. 320 B.C) we know that he studied in Egypt and brought these teachings to Greece. He is unanimously ascribed the introduction of mathematical and astronomical sciences into Greece.:

He is unanimously ascribed the introduction of mathematical and astronomical sciences into Greece.

3)He is unanimously regarded as having been unusually clever--by general agreement the first of the Seven Wise Men, a pupil of the Egyptians and the Chaldeans. 4)None of his writing survives; this makes it is difficult to determine his philosophy and to be certain about his mathematical discoveries. 5)There is, of course, the story of his successful speculation in oil presses -- as testament to his practical business acumen. 6)It is reported that he predicted an eclipse of the Sun on May 28, 585 BC, startling all of Ionia. :

Some ancient authors ascribe to him, without serious justification, a work with the name Nautical Star-guide while according to some others he wrote only two works: On the Solstice and On the Equinox .

[ Anaximander [Miletus, 610 - 546 BC]

Anaximander also founded the sciences of geography astronomy. he was the first man in Greece who drew a map of the known world, which was later refined by travelers and other scholars.:

1)To the East it reaches to the Caspian sea. 2)to the West it ends at the Pillars of Hercules (the rocks of Gibraltar and Mount in Morocco). 3)In the North we see the landmass of Middle Europe and in the South lies Ethiopia and the lower Nile.:

Anaximander map

1)Anaximander was the first to publish a map of the world. 2)These maps indicated directions, roads, towns, borders, and geological features. 3)Maps produced in ancient times, also notably in Egypt, Lydia, the Middle East, and Babylon. :

Anaximander most likely drew this map for three reasons. 1) It could be used to improve navigation and trade between Miletus's colonies and other colonies around the Mediterranean Sea and Black Sea. 2) Thales would probably have found it easier to convince the Ionian city-states to join in a federation in order to push the Median threat away if he possessed such a tool. 3) Finally, the philosophical idea of a global representation of the world simply for the sake of knowledge was reason enough to design one. :

1) Europe was bordered on the south by the Mediterranean Sea and was separated from Asia by the Black Sea, 2) The Lake Maeotis, further east, either by the Phasis River. 3)The Nile flowed south into the ocean, separating Libya from Asia. :
