Abstrakt EN: Anaximander was the first philosopher: he wrote the very first known philosophical lines; but he was also a scientist. He introduced an astronomical instrument, the gnomon, thought about the decent of animals and man, designed the first map of the earth, and made a sketch of the cosmos that became the bleuprint of our Western world-picture. As a philosopher he is said to have taught that the principle of everything is "unlimited" - apeiron. The term to apeiron is usually transalted as "the Boundless". A critical analysis of the sources shows that Anaximander may have used "boundless" with reference to the term phusis, "nature". The phrase phusis apeiros, "boundless nature" may express the boundless power of nature, responsible for all creation and growth.
