Anaximenes (c. 585–525 BCE)
A pre-Socratic quasi-empiricist philosopher who held that air is the source of all that exists, i.e. that it is the arche.

He was also the first philosopher to provide a theory of physical transformation (e.g. he explained how water becomes air) and support it with observations.
