Sophists: The sophists were a group of Greek philosophers in the 5th and 4th centuries BCE. Sophists were not a unified group, and had a wide range of beliefs. They were generally skeptical of traditional values and beliefs, and emphasized the importance of individual thought. Representatives were Protagoras of Abdera, Gorgias of Leontini and Hippias of Elis. See also Sophism, Protagoras, Gorgias, Hippias.
