    Pythagoras probably neither invented the doctrine nor imported it from Egypt, but made his reputation by bringing Orphic doctrine from North-Eastern Hellas to Magna Graecia and by instituting societies for its diffusion. The real weight and importance of metempsychosis is due to its adoption by Plato. Plato's metempsychosis was learnt from the Pythagoreans. He gave the doctrine a philosophic standing such as it never before possessed; for Plato exhibits the most elaborate attempt in the history of philosophy to find in the facts of actual experience justification for .

      Already in antiquity he was famous for advocating the coincidence of opposites, the flux doctrine, and his view that fire is the source and nature of all things. In commenting on Heraclitus, Plato provided an early reading, followed tentatively by Aristotle, and popular down to the present (sharpened and forcefully advocated by Barnes , ch. 4). Plato's successor was Aristotle, a brilliant Macedonian from northern Greece [ BC] who came to Athens to become a student in Plato's Academy circa 15 years after the death of Socrates. He began his long association with Plato at age 17 and for 20 years flourished as Plato's pupil and colleague.

by Herbert Strainge Long. The theory of metempsychosis originated with Pythagoras and his teacher, Pherecydes of Syros, but the popularization of the concept is due to its adoption by Plato.

According to Plato’s view, there is a fixed number of souls in existence, and those souls transmigrate in and out of human and animal bodies, never being destroyed. The Greek philosopher Pythagoras (c. – c. bce) may have obtained his doctrine of metempsychosis (transmigration, or passage of the soul from one body to another; see reincarnation) from India, mediated by Achaemenian (6th–4th century bce) Persia, but similar ideas were known in Egypt and were certainly present.

(Greek meta empsychos, Latin metempsychosis: French metempsychose: German seelenwanderung). Metempsychosis, in other words the doctrine of the transmigration of souls, teaches that the same soul inhabits in succession the bodies of different beings, both men and animals.

It was a tenet common to many systems of philosophic thought and religious belief widely separated from each other both.

The introduction of metempsychosis as a philosophical doctrine is due to Pythagoras (c. BC), who, we are told, gave himself out as identical with the Trojan hero Euphorbos, and added copious details of his subsequent soul-wanderings.

The Greek doctrine of metempsychosis is linked to Pythagoras and his cult. It did not include the possibility of humans reincarnating as animals. From this fact alone you must surely see that "reincarnation" is not an invariable doctrine.

In spite of your boasting, you betray your ignorance and lack of intellectual curiosity. Pythagoras was a mathematician and philosopher from Ancient Greece.

Around BC, Pythagoras was born on Samos, a Greek Island. He was the son of a seal engraver named Mnesarchus. The cause of his death around BC remains to be a mystery. Pythagoras was best known for the Pythagorean theory. Plato becomes an acknowledged diadochos of Pythagoras and a student of Archytas, in which role he figures in Pythagoras’ biography i n the A nonymus Photii (–7); Aristotle here.

Pythagoreanism can be defined in a number of ways. (1) Pythagoreanism is the philosophy of the ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras (ca. – ca. BCE), which prescribed a highly structured way of life and espoused the doctrine of metempsychosis (transmigration of the soul after death into a new body, human or animal).

(2) Pythagoreanism is the philosophy of a group of. Herbert Strainge Long, A study of the doctrine of metempsychosis in Greece from Pythagoras to Plato, By Joseph Moreau Publisher: PERSÉE - ENS de Lyon, Université de Lyon & CNRS.
