Introduction to Anaxagoras
In this lecture we discuss Anaxagoras. Specifically, we will investigate his interesting theory of matter which claimed that 'everything is in everything', and introduce him as the first philosopher to divide the universe into mind and matter. To conclude we will look at the difference between a teleological and mechanistic view of the universe, and see how Anaxagoras combined these two views in a unique manner.
