Question and answer
who was pythagoras
Pythagoras of Samos (Greek: circa 580 BC – circa 500 BC) was an Ionian (Greek) mathematician, astronomer, scientist and philosopher. He is best known for the Pythagorean theorem which bears his name. [ Known as "the father of numbers," Pythagoras made influential contributions to philosophy and religious teaching in the late 6th century BC. We do know that Pythagoras and his students believed that everything was related to mathematics and that numbers were the ultimate reality and, through mathematics, everything could be predicted and measured in rhythmic patterns or cycles. He was the
first man to call himself a philosopher, or lover of wisdom. Many of the accomplishments of Plato, Aristotle and Copernicus were based on the ideas of Pythagoras. His ideas mirror other great philosophies such as Hinduism, the Yin-Yang, Buddhism and String Theory. Unfortunately, very little is known about Pythagoras because none of his writings have survived. Many of the accomplishments credited to Pythagoras may actually have been accomplishments of his colleagues and successors ]
