  Pastoral Poetry and Pastoral Drama eBook

 Polyaenus: Stratagems - Book 5 (b)
But instead of employing them against the common enemy, he bribed them with the money from the sanctuaries, and by their assistance he established himself as tyrant, instead of general.
Democles, who was sent on an embassy by Dionysius the tyrant, was accused by the other ambassadors of neglecting the tyrant's interests.
When this was reported to Dionysius, and he expressed his resentment, Democles said: "Our quarrels originated merely in this: after supper, they wanted sing the paeans of Stesichorus and Pindarus, and I wanted to sing your paeans." And at the same time, he recited some of Dionysius' verses.

It must be observed that Dionysius and the Suda call this orator by the patronymic form of his name, Democleides, so he may be the same person called Democleides who was archon in 316 BC.4

 Philosophy
This was especially so under teachers like Parmenides, Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato, who adopted a paradigm in which science and mysticism were not two distinct things, but rather came together as holistic vision of Reality.
Others like Thales, Democles, Empedocles, and Aristotle adopted a more scientific approach, albeit still acknowledging a certain metaphysical reality.
Yet when we look at the history of Western Philosophy we see it represents a long march from wisdom tradition to secular intellectualism.
