Plato (ca. – b.c.) was one of the leading philosophers of ancient system of thought, known as Platonism, gained favor with many scholars during the Renaissance.

Among those who studied Plato were Nicholas of Cusa, Marsilio Ficino, and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola. At the beginning of the period, Italian scholars knew little. Greek is strange when it comes to pronouncing and writing words with the “s” sound, represented by the Greek letter sigma.

On the one hand, the sound is very common in Greek. On the other, if a word is odd or difficult to spell or pronounce, it seems that a sigma is often involved. aitia is difficult to translate. The English ‘cause’ suggests efficient causation, some factor present in a situation that actually brings about a change.

Answer by Helier Robinson This question could be the opening of a book on the history of western philosophy. First of all, an explanation of why Heraclitus and Parmenides held the views they did.

This arises from the problem of identity and change. The terms aitia and aition often figure centrally in Plato’s discussions of causation.
