Science Quotes by Sextus Empiricus (1 quote)
Democritus sometimes does away with what appears to the senses, and says that none of these appears according to truth but only according to opinion: the truth in real things is that there are atoms and void. By convention sweet, he says, by convention bitter, by convention hot, by convention cold, by convention colour: but in reality atoms and void.
— Sextus Empiricus
