Sorry, no etymologies found.
(Anaxagoras posits as elements the ‘homoeomeries’, viz. bone, flesh, marrow, and everything else which is such that part and whole are the same in name and nature; while Democritus and Leucippus say that there are indivisible bodies, infinite both in number and in the varieties of their shapes, of which everything else is composed-the compounds differing one from another according to the shapes, ‘positions’, and ‘groupings’ of their constituents.)
Anaxagoras of Miletus (c. 500425), the first philosopher to live in Athens, argued that the world was made up of elements (homoeomeries) organized by the cosmic mind (nous).
‘simple’ rather than flesh, bone, and bodies which, like these, are ‘homoeomeries’.
