” Demokritos is considered the forefather of modern atomic theory. He was born in Abdera, Thrace, and mentored by Lefkippos. His extensive travels in Ionia brought him into contact with the teachings of the great Ionian philosophers ( Thales, Anaximander, Anaximenes, Herakleitos ).
Demokritos was the last of the great pre-Socratic philosophers, who were to have a profound influence on modern philosophy. “
