Heraklitos

Greek philosopher Herakleitos had wondered from ancient years about the progress of the society. His opinion about economy, energy, environment and how the society can achieve this goals was that we to change our sense of value. He also said that “all things are in a state of flux” that means that the world changes following the progress and maintains united to order from this change.

Some things from his life and ideas.
HERACLITUS ( 540?475 B.c.), was born at Ephesus of distinguished parentage. Of his early life an.d education we know nothing; from the contempt with which he spoke of all his fellow-philosophers and ?of his fellow-citizens as a whole we may gather that he regarded himself as self-taught and a pion.eer of wisdom. So intensely aristocratic was his temperament that he declined to exercise the regal-hieratic office which was hereditary in his family, and presented it to his brother. It is probable, however, that he did occasionally intervene in the affairs of the city at the period when the rule of Persia had given. place to autonomy; it is said that he compelled the usurper Melancomas to abdicate. From the lonely life he led, and still more from the extreme profundity of his philosophy and his contempt for mankind in general, he was called the ?Dark Philosopher ? , or the ?Weeping Philosopher,? in contrast to Democritus, the ?Laughing Philosopher.?
Heraclitus is in a real sense the founder of metaphysics. Starting from the physical standpoint of the lonian physicists, he accepted their general idea of the unity of nature, but entirely denied their theory of being. The fundamental uniform fact in nature is constant change everything both is and is not at the same time. He thus arrives at the principle of Relativity; harmony and unity consist in diversity and multiplicity. The senses are ? bad witnesses only the wise man can obtain knowledge.
The school of disciples founded by Heraclitus flourished for long after his death, the chief exponent of his teaching being Cratylus. A good deal of the information in regard to his doctrines has been gathered from the later Greek philosophy, which was deeply influenced by it.
