Description

Philosopher and founder of Thales Day, Henrik Schoeneberg, will explain why he thinks we should celebrate the tradition of philosophy and science on the day most commonly associated with its beginning, May 28. On this day, 585 BC, the Greek philosopher Thales of Miletus, allegedly predicted a solar eclipse which initiated a shift of thinking, from mythos to logos.
