Kazimierz Deyna

Kazimierz Deyna was a Polish footballer, who played as an offensive midfielder in the playmaker role and was one of the most regarded players of his generation, due to his excellent vision. Deyna was born in Starogard Gdański to Franciszek – a dairy worker, Jadwiga – a housewife, he had six sisters and two brothers – Henryk and Franciszek, who were footballers. Deyna began playing youth football in 1958 at his local club Włókniarz Starogard Gdański. In 1966 he made one appearance for ŁKS Łódź, but he was snapped up by Legia Warsaw. In communist Poland each team had its own "sponsor"; the Warsaw club was much more powerful. Moreover, it was the favourite club of the authorities. Deyna was called up into the army and in this way he had to play for Legia Warsaw, he made a name for himself during his first season. In 1969 and 1970 his team won the Polish Championship. After his performances at the 1974 World Cup, European top-teams like AS Saint-Etienne, A. C. Milan, Inter Milan, AS Monaco, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich tried to acquire his services but he was unable to join, since the communist regime in Poland prevented him from moving to Western Europe.

Real Madrid was so determined to acquire Deyna that they sent a shirt to Warsaw with his name and number "14". On 24 April 1968, he made his debut for the national team of Poland in a match against Turkey in Chorzów, he won the gold medal in the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, the bronze in Football World Cup 1974, after a match against Brazil. In 1972, he was the Top Goalscorer of the Olympic Games, with a total of nine goals. In 1976 Summer Olympics his team yet won the silver medal. Additionally, he was ranked third in the European Footballer of the Year for 1974, behind Johan Cruyff and Franz Beckenbauer. Deyna played for Poland on 97 occasions, scoring 41 goals, captained the side, he had the ability to score for example directly from a corner. Because of his achievements and talents, he was chosen Football Player of the Year several times by Polish fans. In 1978, he captained Poland at the Football World Cup in Argentina, where the team reached the second phase. Soon afterwards Deyna was transferred to English club Manchester City, making his debut in November 1978, being one of the first wave of overseas players to play in the English league.

His time in England was marred by a series of injuries, he left in January 1981, shortly after Manchester City made a managerial change, having made only 43 appearances in all competitions. However, he was regarded as an exceptionally gifted playmaker and became a cult figure with City fans. Deyna scored thirteen goals in his time with the club. Furthermore, his seven goals in the last eight games of the 1978/79 season were crucial for Manchester City in their relegation battle, he appeared in the 1981 film Escape to Victory as Paul Wolcheck. In the same year, he emigrated to the United States, where he signed with the San Diego Sockers of the North American Soccer League in January 1981. During the next seven years, he played four NASL outdoor seasons, one NASL indoor season and five Major Indoor Soccer League seasons with the Sockers, winning five championships; the Sockers released him in June 1987.

Leucippus

Leucippus is reported in some ancient sources to have been a philosopher, the earliest Greek to develop the theory of atomism—the idea that everything is composed of various imperishable, indivisible elements called atoms. Leucippus appears as the master to his pupil Democritus, a philosopher touted as the originator of the atomic theory. "Aristotle and Theophrastos made him the originator of the atomic theory, they can hardly have been mistaken on such a point." An authoritative quote by Burnet in the fourth edition of Early Greek Philosophy, Chapter IX'Leuikippos of Miletos', pg. 330. However, a brief notice in Diogenes Laërtius’s life of Epicurus says that on the testimony of Epicurus, Leucippus never existed; as the philosophical heir of Democritus, Epicurus's word has some weight, indeed a controversy over this matter raged in German scholarship for many years at the close of the 19th century. Furthermore, in his Corpus Democriteum, Thrasyllus of Alexandria, an astrologer and writer living under the emperor Tiberius, compiled a list of writings on atomism that he attributed to Democritus to the exclusion of Leucippus.

The present consensus among the world's historians of philosophy is that this Leucippus is historical. The matter must remain moot. Leucippus was most born in Miletus, although Abdera and Elea are mentioned as possible birthplaces. Leucippus was indeed a shadowy figure, as his dates are not recorded and he is mentioned in conjunction with his more well-known pupil Democritus, it is therefore difficult to determine which contributions to an atomic theory come from Democritus and which come from Leucippus. The Leucippus of record was an Ionian Greek, and he was a contemporary of Zeno of Empedocles. He belonged to the same Ionian School of naturalistic philosophy as Thales and Anaximenes. Aristotle and his student Theophrastus, explicitly credit Leucippus with the invention of Atomism. In Aristotelian terms Leucippus agreed with the Eleatic argument that "true being does not admit of vacuum" and there can be no movement in the absence of vacuum. Leucippus contended. However, he concludes that vacuum is identified with nonbeing, since "nothing" cannot be.

According to Aristotle Leucippus differed from the Eleatics in not being encumbered by the "conceptual intermingling" of being and non-being, Plato made the necessary distinction between "grades of being and types of negation". The title most attributed to Leucippus' is the lost work Megas Diakosmos. Fragments and doxographical reports about Leucippus were collected by Hermann Diels, firstly in Doxographi Graeci and in Die Fragmente der Vorsokratiker, Berlin, 1903, 6th ed. rev. by Walther Kranz Diels was the leading proponent for a historical Leucippus. Some sources claim that around 440 or 430 BCE Leucippus founded a school at Abdera, with which his pupil, was associated, and there is mention that a Leucippus founded the city of Metapontum, which honored this Leucippus with a coin.
