Meet The Riddler Of Ancient Greece

Heraclitus, also known as the ‘Obscure,’ the ‘Riddler’ or the ‘Dark One,’ was one of the Greek philosophers that predated Socrates. The ‘Riddler’ has influenced Plato, Aristotle, Jung, Kafka, and so many others. His oddly dark nicknames came from the cryptic and often paradoxical nature of his work. Speaking of his work, the Herclitean philosophy believed that everything is constantly changing. The philosopher defended the unity of opposites (the idea that opposite things are identical), and was the first philosopher in Greece to use Logos in his theory to describe the cosmic order.
