please write a brief paper (roughly 500 words, based only on these materials and NOT relying on any web or other sources) answering the following question:
QUESTION: Can you sum up what the goals and findings of the Atomists and/or the Pluralists were? You may write about both, of course, but because these are such brief papers, we recommend that you choose one.
In other words: basically, assuming you were, in turn, teaching these topics to someone else, what would you tell them about this group of Pre-Socratic thinkers? What questions motivated them? What were their theories or conclusions? And what relevance does their philosophy/science have to our world today?
please keep quotes minimal. You only need to cite direct quotes. Please use Chicago-style formatting for any citations.
