Anaximenes of Miletus

Anaximenes of Miletus (/ˌænækˈsɪməˌniːz/; Greek: Ἀναξιμένης ὁ Μιλήσιος; c. 585 – c. 528 BC) was an Ancient Greek Pre-Socratic philosopher active in the latter half of the 6th century BC.
One of the three Milesian philosophers, he is identified as a younger friend or student of Anaximander.Anaximenes, like others in his school of thought, practiced material monism.
This tendency to identify one specific underlying reality made up of a material thing is what Anaximenes is principally known for today.
