Similar speculations are found in mythographers such as Hesiod and Homer; but what made the philosophers different was an effort to establish cosmology on a naturalistic rather than mythological basis. The philosophical cosmologists developed a robust tradition of speculation that flourished in the sixth and fifth centuries b.
The early philosophers have come to be known as the Pre-Socratics, a rubric meant to distinguish them from followers and spiritual descendants of Socrates, who famously turned philosophy from cosmological to humanistic and ethical concerns. But the term seems to demote these creative thinkers to the role of unwitting forerunners to the "real" philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle. And it tends to encourage a narrow view of the project of early philosophy, as if the Pre-Socratics were limited by their inevitable historical role. Furthermore, "Pre-Socratics" such as Democritus were contemporaries of Socrates, and indeed some of the tribe of Pre-Socratics lived in the mid- and [End Page ] late-fourth century, long after Socrates' death.
Because of such considerations, Laks and Most avoid the term "Pre-Socratic" as much as possible 1: 6—7 , thinking of their subjects as Pre-Platonic, and as we shall see including Socrates within their purview.
