English term or phrase:the alternative atomic theory
For example,the Greeks concluded that all matter was made of four elements;the chinese supposed there were five-water,earth,metal,wood and fire.The chinese,like most Greeks,believed matter to be continuous.Perhaps their picture of the world as an organism prevented them from thinking of the alternative atomic theory,unlike the Greeks.
