Words 1,218


Pythagoras is almost a mythical Character in history, but he was very real and left his mark on philosophy and science till the present day.  Nonetheless a few “facts” seem reasonably clear. He was born on the island of Samos to a quite wealthy family around 580 BC. The city was an important commercial center of about 200,000 people and a focus of religious festivals. His father, Mnesarchus, was reputedly a merchant who originally came from the Phoenician city of Tyre, while his mother was Pythais and she was a native of Samos. At around age 50, Pythagoras left Samos:  he was against the “tyranny” of Polycrates at Samos. He moved on to the Greek city of Crotona, located on the southern shore of Italy. He outshines as a student and traveled extensively as a young man. It was possibly also in these travels (perhaps in Egypt) that he encountered astrology–and the mathematics that inexorably goes with astrological calculations. An unfaltering pilgrim for much of his life, Pythagoras traveled in leisure all through southern Europe, Asia Minor, Persia, Palestine, Phoenicia, Egypt, Arabia, and as far away as India. He was well received in most places and was often support on his ventures by great public figures, including kings and respected priests. Both the civic and philosophical sides of his determined imagination were generously demonstrated in plain sense directions and cautiously considered equations.
