Thesis Statement
Protagoras denies a perfect form for all things, while Pythagoras clearly presents the better case with harmonia.
Pythagoras, known as “the father of numbers” through his Pythagorean Theorem is regarded as the first to seek for the form of all things . From Protagoras’s perspective, named as one of the “Sophists” by Plato, there would probably be no exact form for anything. Without an understanding of a true source from which all form flows with, we eliminate all possibility of discovering the greater truth form carries with it. Pythagoras on the other hand deeply searches for a reason for the cosmos in every function of life, and that, carries a significant purpose for form.

Mathematical formulas and ratios, Pythagoras claimed were at the very center of the physical world through which the form of matter could be explained. The Pythagorean perspective stresses that number is universal, "the principle, source, and root of all things" . The formula of the Tetras in which the number 10 is held as the nature of a number can be seen by far as the most solid argument for the form of all things. All four numbers which include one, two, three, and four when added come to equal ten, thus reflecting the essential source of nature and reality together, in which all the cosmos are arranged according to harmonia. Harmonia consists of a melodic framework of three chords where the ratio of the octave is 1:2, the fifth 2:3, and the fourth 3:4 . This phenomenon represents perfect proportionality to the universe by means of form. Now each chord retains its individual identity, but all are still proportionally connected together to form a larger musical scale, thus all three chords needing to be interdependent of one another. Like an ecosystem that works together with its given environment, it most importantly has to function as a unit, via symbiotic relationships . You see, our society works in a similar way as well by functioning as a whole. The trees...

...PythagorasPythagoras must have been one of the world's greatest men. However, he wrote nothing and it is unknown how much of the doctrine of Pythagoras is due to the founder of society and how much is later development. Sometimes he is represented as a man of science, a mathematician, and even as a preacher of mystical doctrines. None of these traditional views, however, should be rejected, for he contributed his genius in each field. ...

Pythagoras of Samos
Pythagoras of Samos was born sometime around 569 BC and since then has been said to be a strange and mysterious man. There are no writings of Pythagoras himself but his teachings and beliefs continue to influence modern philosophers and scientists. Pythagoras was born on the Greek island of Samos in the Mediterranean Sea, and although information about his early life in Samos is unknown, it is known that...

...The Greek philosopher, scientist, and religious teacher Pythagoras developed a school of thought that accepted the passage of the soul into another body and established many influential mathematical and philosophical theories.
Early life
Born on the island of Samos, off Greece, in the Mediterranean Sea, Pythagoras was the son of Mnesarchus. Little is known about his early life. After studying in Greece, he fled to southern Italy to escape the harsh rule...

...describe the numbers 10 and 100, making it easier to describe larger numbers. Geometry started to receive great attention and served in surveying land, cities and streets. The Babylonians discovered the Pythagorean theorem. They understood it before Pythagoras was even born. The Babylonians also found out the approximate value of r^2. In India, Aryabhata calculated the number p to its fourth decimal point, managed to correctly forecast eclipses and, when solving astronomical...

...PYTHAGORAS OF SAMOS
Pythagoras of Samos, more commonly known as Pythagoras is recognized as the world’s first mathematician. Pythagoras’ image is mysterious because none of his writings are published, and the ‘society he led, half religious and half scientific, followed a code of secrecy’ (O’Connor and Robertson, 1993). He was born c575 BC in Samos, Greece, and was killed in c495 BC. Details about Pythagoras can be...

Pythagoras of Samos is often described as the first pure mathematician. He is an extremely important figure in the development of mathematics yet there is relatively little known about his mathematical achievements. Unlike many later Greek mathematicians, where at least we have some of the books which they wrote, there is nothing of Pythagoras's writings. The society...
