“The Sophist Protagoras (c. 570-c. 495 B.C.) was known for his investigation into the “correctness of names.”10 He also distinguished between different types of sentences and criticized Homer for committing an error in gender at the beginning of the Iliad, making menis, ‘wrath,’ feminine instead of masculine.”

Comparing him to Socrates, Epictetus recorded in his Discourses that Antisthenes thought that the basis of education was the study of names. A logician who reflected on the relationship among beauty, truth and language, Antisthenes posited that contradicting was a logical impossibility,12 arguing that nothing can be said except with the proper logos and that there is but a single logos for each thing;”
