Definitions of pythagoreans
( Hist.) The followers of the Samian Pythagoras, called the first of the Greek philosophers. His lifetime is uncertain. He is said to have resolved all philosophy into the relations of numbers, God being the original unity; and to have drawn up a table of opposites [ Gr.] -odd and even, one and many, etc., which points to a system of dualism. See Ahriman; Metempsychosis.
