In this lecture we investigate the ideas of the first three Presocratics, who are referred to as the Milesians: Thales, Anaximander and Anaximenes. In particular, we will explain how they were in search of the arche, or the underlying source and origin of the world. Furthermore, we will show how the Milesians were engaged in the same search which modern theoretical physicists are engaged in today.
