Best Answer

Pythagoras supposedly made influential contributions to philosophy and religion in the late 6th century BC. He is best known for the Pythagorean theorem which bears his name. However, because legend and mystery cloud his work even more than that of the other pre-Socratic philosophers, only tentative accounts of his work are given, and it has been questioned whether he contributed much to mathematics or natural philosophy, and whether the Pythagorean theorem is even his.
