Logos/Philosophy/Antiquity/Heraclitus/Taureck: the real thinker of the Logos before the Sophists was Heraclitus (~ 550 - 480). (different to Wikipedia, English: c 535 - c 475).
"If they have not heard me, but the Logos, it is wise to observe, according to the Logos, that everything is one."
Taureck: according to that, the Logos is a universal, a world reason that summarizes everything different.
"Although the Logos is universal, the majority lives as if they possessed their own reason."_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
