World Science Day for Peace and Development - Greece
For the third year, from November 1st to 3rd, Gymnasium Komotini hosted the 75th contest Mathematical Society "Thales" .
Thales of Miletus (ca. 630/635 BC - 543 BC) is the oldest Pre-Socratic philosoph, the first of the seven sages of antiquity, mathematician, physicist, astronomer, engineer, meteorologist and founder of the Milesian school of natural filosofias. Thales attempted to understand the world through the eyes of science and explain natural phenomena such as Eclipse Sun, without using references to mythology, as they were in his time. He was a great teacher with a tremendously great influence in almost all subsequent pre-Socratic philosophers. They followed in the footsteps of their effort to create substantiated undeniable true beliefs about natural phenomena, celestial bodies, and using other tools as Logic, mathematics, physics, biology, astrology and not the myths and legends.
