520 8  In this work, Daniel W. Graham argues against the belief 
       that the Presocratic philosophers did not produce any 
       empirical science and that the first major Greek science, 
       astronomy, did not develop until at least the time of 
       Plato. Instead, Graham proposes that the advances made by 
       presocratic philosophers in the study of astronomy deserve
       to be considered as scientific contributions.
