  1. Dirk L. Couprie (2014). Science Before Socrates: Parmenides, Anaxagoras, and the New Astronomy by Daniel W. Graham (Review). Journal of the History of Philosophy 52 (4):835-836.
    Within the timespan of two years, two books have been published on the Presocratics as scientists. In 2011 appeared Carlo Rovelli’s The First Scientist. Anaximander and His Legacy, (Yardley: Westholme), and in 2013 Daniel Graham’s Science before Socrates. Whereas Rovelli, whose main field of study is quantum gravity, argues that Anaximander was the first scientist, Graham maintains that Anaximander should not count as a scientist. Empirical science started with Anaxagoras, who used his assumption that solar eclipses occur when the moon (...)

  6. Dirk L. Couprie & Heleen J. Pott (2003). Valangst: Hemel en aarde in de antieke kosmologie. Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 65 (2):227 - 247.
    The idea of the spherical world, poised in space, and encircled at different distances by the celestial bodies, was introduced by the early Greek cosmologists. With some modifications, it is still our Western world-picture. It differs fundamentally from that of other cultures, which all accept, in one version or another, the idea of a flat earth with the dome of the celestial vault above it.
