    Strobaeus, describing the pythagoreans, wrote about the concepts of peiron and apeiron. Anyone know the reference or could anyone give me a lead?

  2. Hi Ted,


    There are many fragments of Stobaeus related with this concept, not only one or two. Perhaps you should get a copy of Stobaeus, or, first, download Guthrie’s History of Greek Philosophy, vol. I, The early Presocratics and the Pythagoreans, where Pythagorean philosophy is presented and many references to Stobaeus are to be found.
