Locations the advance of Anaximander's proposal squarely inside social, political, cosmological, astronomical, and technological contexts.
Promoting a brand new, widely interdisciplinary horizon for destiny reviews in early Greek philosophy, Dirk L. Couprie, Robert Hahn, and Gerard Naddaf identify the cultural context during which Anaximander's idea built and during which the origins of Greek philosophy spread out in its earliest phases. so that it will higher comprehend Anaximander's fulfillment, the authors name our awareness to the old, social, political, technological, cosmological, astronomical, and observational contexts of his idea.

It is possible that after his death the social cohesion that he was able to maintain disintegrated. 69 Although there is a certain consensus that the conﬂict was between the rich and the poor, it is unclear what must be understood by rich and poor. What is certain is that the Parians, old friends and allies of the Milesians, were asked to arbitrate the conﬂict, and they decided to give the power to the owners of well-cultivated estates. Who were these owners? 28) says that after this conﬂict was resolved by the Parians, Miletus reached the peak of its prosperity.
This suggests that it was actually Leodamus who led the Milesians forces during the Lelantine war (Huxley 1966, 50; Jeffrey 1977, 210). Amphitres meanwhile lost his campaign, while Leodamus won. Nevertheless, Amphitres later murdered Leodamus and seized power by force. But the exiled sons and friends of Leodamus returned, and when the two sides clashed, the sons of Leodamus were victorious and killed Amphitres. The tyranny of Amphitres was thus short lived. Indeed, after peace was restored, it seems that the d›moV or citizens elected a lawgiver (aÎsumn–thV) or a “temporary dictator” called Epimenes.
Given the circumstances and the particulars, it seems that there was never a period in which Miletus did not prosper economically, and when strife did occur between factions, it seems that it did not last long. While there is no reason to disbelieve that the strife was not at times intense, even as intense as Plutarch describes, there is nothing to say that it was widespread to the point that Miletus lapsed into utter chaos during a short period of time, let alone a prolonged period of time. Clearly, there was a group, perhaps a very large group, that occupied a position between the two extremes (and it may or may not have had the support of the army and/or navy).
