Tradition reports that Thales was the teacher of Anaximander, who in turn taught Anaximenes.

It is not an easy read because 1 if one has not studied logic or philosophy before, they might have a hard time grasping more than is stated in the pages and 2 they are fragments, and one has to be generous in interpreting what is being said.
