“Pythagoras of Samos ([…] c. 570–495 BC) was an Ionian Greek philosopher and the eponymous founder of the Pythagoreanism movement. His political and religious teachings were extremely influential in Magna Graecia throughout antiquity and exerted a profound impact on the philosophies of Plato, Aristotle, and, through them, Western philosophy at large.” —Wikipedia
