Theories of Democritus and Anaximander

Discuss ideas and theories of Democritus and Anaximander on the structure of the cosmos, their style of reasoning and their theories (such as the “reasonable cause” principle). Feel free to postulate on the influence of their ideas on modern scientific reasoning and basic theories. Since there is a lot more on Democritus and in more detail than on Anaximander, feel free to give more emphasis to Democritus, unless you may feel more attracted to the ideas of Anaximander.

The exam should be done in an essay that has at least five pages, but to write that essay you have to get the information from the book which is THE FLAME OF MILETUS.

Note: ONLY ONE SOURCE WHICH IS THE BOOK “THE FLAME OF MILETUS”. THANK YOU
