Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0754605337, Hardcover)"What is the basic building block of the universe"? Thales of Miletus was the first to ask this fundamental, yet to be answered, question in the sixth century BC. This book offers an in depth account of the answers he gave and of his adventure into many areas of learning: philosophy, science, mathematics and astronomy. Thales proved that the events of nature were comprehensible to man and could be explained without the intervention of mythological beings. Henceforth they became subject to investigation, experiment, questioning and discussion.
