Re: Empedocles (08/02/17 22:23:18)
For all purposes, possibly with the exception of poetry, the idea of four elements is useless. A few hundred years of science has done a lot for that. Even the educational policies of Donald Trump will not be sufficient for wiping away that science - even if he manages to keep in office for those four years.
Ancient Greek philosophy: Some of it was entertaining to read, but I have wasted far much time on that useless stuff. They should have given us Demokrit and Herodot instead of Empedokles, Protagoras and Socrates. Well, we did get Archimedes and Pythagoras, which was good.
