Aesara

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Aesara of Lucania)

Aesara of Lucania (Greek: Αἰσάρα Aisara) was a conjectured Pythagorean philosopher who may have written On Human Nature, a fragment of which is preserved by Stobaeus, although the majority of critical scholars follow Holger Thesleff[1] in attributing it to Aresas,[2] a male writer from Lucania who is also mentioned by Iamblichus in his Life of Pythagoras.[3]
