|Taureck I 98
Recognition/World/Protagoras/Taureck: Thesis: The human is the measure of all things. (Sentence "M", "Homo mensura sentence").
"The human is the measurement for all things, the being that they are, the not being that they are not."
"... a human, ... as they are."
Interpretation at first sight: recognition, truth, the good and beauty are anthropologically understandable. > Relativity of knowledge.
HobbesVsProtagoras: (Leviathan, 1651): "human" describes the source of all errors.
BaconVsProtagoras: (1561-1626): the assertion that the human sense is the measure of all things is inaccurate. The human mind resembles a mirror which does not reflect the rays uniformly, but mixes its nature into things and distorts them.
Protagoras/Taureck: there is no indication that Protagoras himself had somehow understood his sentence critically.
Protagoras: I know nothing about the gods, the secrecy and the brevity of life hinders me.

Sextus Empiricus: (150 - ~ 250) explains why the skeptics were not seeing Protagoras as one of them: + ... confused "metron" with criterion ...
Protagoras: Paradoxes of the senses and minds: the senses speak to the mind: "Unhappy mind, you take the certifications of us with which you revive us. Your refutation is your downfall."
