BIOGRAPHY

A greek philosopher of the Eleatic school, a pupil of Parmenides, a fanatic of the idea that every movement was just an illusion, as it can’t have a start and it cannot reach an ending point as it has to come through infinite middle points, and due to its relativity, moving cannot end, Aristotle and Engels were among those who tried to prove the sayings of Xenon, whom Aristotle called father of dialectics due to his extreme theories. He tried to free the Eleans from the tyranny of Nearchus, and for that he was sentenced to death by torturing, being hit in a mortar until he died.
