Pythagoras

Pythagoras (c.570â€”c.495 BCE), Greek philosopher and mathematician

Giants of Science - Here is a chronological list of a few mathematicians and scientists whose towering achievements have helped shape the Science of their times and ours.

Pythagoras (circa 570-495BC) Vegetarian mystical leader and number-obsessive, he owes his standing as the most famous name in maths due to a theorem about right-angled triangles, although it now appears it probably predated him. He lived in a community where numbers were venerated as much for their spiritual qualities as for their mathematical ones. His elevation of numbers as the essence of the world made him the towering primogenitor of Greek mathematics.

Pythagoras of Samos (c. 580 â€“ c. 500 BCE). Of the Ionian School. Understood the deepest reality to be composed of numbers; believed that souls are immortal.
