Heraclitus: (Before the Sophists): "The Physique likes to hide".
This corresponds more to the notion of "true nature". In Heraclitus there is also no opposition between Logos and Physique.
For the contrast to the "actual nature" can only be "appearance".
Physique/Sophists: the Sophists have an entirely different meaning: Physique is here the opposite of Nomos: Law of Nature._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
