Miletus: situated on the Aegean coast of the Ionian world in Asia Minor, the city is credited with being the birthplace of western science and philosophy. Beginning in the 6th Century BC, we meet Thales, known as the Father of Science along with other thinkers who laid the foundation for the science and knowledge that we continue to embrace today.
