El nacimiento de la Ciencia en los Presocráticos

  • Joel Sebastián Schneider
Registered author(s):

    Este trabajo analiza el nacimiento de la ciencia en la antigua Grecia entre los pensadores presocráticos. Se destacan tres aspectos, en primer lugar que es entre los presocráticos donde se produce el paso del mito al logos. En segundo lugar, que sus ideas han sido precursoras de muchas teorías científicas de la modernidad. Y en tercer lugar, este trabajo propone un concepto al que se denomina principio de ignorancia o duda, el cual destaca la imposibilidad del hombre de conocer la verdad del mundo, al menos con la simple experiencia de los sentidos. A partir de este principio, cuya existencia se demuestra acudiendo a las fuentes de los escritos presocráticos, se concluye en que, al tomar conciencia éstos de que la realidad es muy compleja, dan impulso a la búsqueda del conocimiento mediante la razón, dando así origen a la ciencia.
