Based on the period when Turing went to school, it is fairly inconceivable he was not well familiar with Protagoras, and the statement that:
"Man is the measure of all things"
*I asked a question about this on philosophy, and garnered answers casting doubt on the ancient axiom's relevance to computing, but any such categorizations, as my own, are purely subjective, and one critique in general regards the "Imitation Game" as not a philosophical subject, where it is more properly a philosophical "rabbit hole".
Regardless, my question here is more direct:
- Did Turing, or those commenting on the Imitation Game, mention the famous axiom attributed to Protagoras?
