Zeno of Elea

Zeno of Elea (c.490-c.430 BC)


Zeno of Elea (c. 490 – c. 430 BC) was a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher of Magna Graecia and a member of the Eleatic School founded by Parmenides. Aristotle called him the inventor of the dialectic.

He is best known for his paradoxes, which Bertrand Russell has described as "immeasurably subtle and profound".
