He appealed to facts, was more interested in detail than his predecessors, and made experiments (p. ® T h e earlier Ionian philosophers chose as the basis of the material world one or other of the four ‘elements’ fire, air, water, and (rarely) earth. Empedokles’ outstanding contribution was to take all four, and this ‘theory of the four elements’ lasted until the end of the 18 cent. d .
