CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Nominalism, Realism, Conceptualism These terms are used to designate the theories that have been proposed as solutions of one of the most important questions in philosophy, often referred to as the problem of universals, which, while it was a favourite subject for discussion in ancient times, and especially in the Middle Ages, is still prominent in modern and contemporary philosophy. http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/11090c.htm

Z These terms are used to designate the theories that have been proposed as solutions of one of the most important questions in philosophy, often referred to as the problem of universals , which, while it was a favourite subject for discussion in ancient times, and especially in the Middle Ages , is still prominent in modern and contemporary philosophy. We propose to discuss in this article: I. The Nature of the Problem and the Suggested Solutions; III. The Claims of Moderate Realism. I. THE PROBLEM AND THE SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS The problem of universals is the problem of the correspondence of our intellectual concepts to things existing outside our intellect. Whereas external objects are determinate, individual, formally exclusive of all multiplicity, our concepts or mental representations offer us the realities independent of all particular determination; they are abstract and universal. The question, therefore, is to discover to what extent the concepts of the mind correspond to the things they represent; how the flower we conceive represents the flower existing in nature; in a word, whether our ideas are faithful and have an objective reality. Four solutions of the problem have been offered. It is necessary to describe them carefully, as writers do not always use the terms in the same sense.

Carvaka Article from the Swaveda Forum for Hindu Studies, detailing the basic doctrines of this ancient school of materialistic thought. http://www.swaveda.com/Philosophy/Carvaka.htm
Extractions: Of the three important sources of knowledge accepted in common by all the orthodox schools (perception, inference, and verbal testimony), the Carvakas accepted only perception as the valid source of knowledge and rejected both inference and verbal testimony. Whatever we know through perception is true and real. The Carvakas at first seem not to have been aware of the difficulties in accepting perception as a valid source of knowledge, which were pointed out later by the Buddhist and Vedanta dialecticians. The later Carvakas showed that they knew of the difficulties, but they did not discuss the implications of this question and maintained on the whole a realistic position.

Extractions: Sophists (which means "wise men"). They taught people how to argue for anything, regardless of whether or not their cause was worthy. Other philosophers turned to mysticism and the gods for answers Pythagoras was one of these. He also believed that the study of mathematics could reveal a lot about nature, especially the relationships between numbers; for example, the relationship between the lengths of the sides of a triangle. Socrates, Plato and Aristotle The three most important Greek philosophers are Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. Socrates , whom we only know about from later sources (especially Plato) and not from his own writings, claimed to know nothing himself. He would specialise in finding people who claimed to have knowledge for example, politicians, poets and craftsmen and ask them many questions. Invariably, he ended up finding contradictions in what they believed and showing them that they did not know as much as they thought. He claimed that he was wiser than everybody else because he knew that he knew nothing, whereas they knew nothing but thought that they really knew things. In the end, he made many enemies in Athens and was sentenced to death for impiety and "corrupting the youth". Socrates' most important pupil was Plato , who startes his own philosophical school. Among Plato's most famous beliefs is his "theory of forms" the belief that for every type of object and quality there is a perfect example in the immaterial world, called a "form". Things in this world have the qualities they do because they partake in these forms.

The pre-Socratic Greek philosophers rejected traditional mythological explanations for the phenomena they saw around them in favor of more rational explanations.

And why are we able to describe them with a singular mathematics?
