Читая про Финикию

Зенон Сидонский, родился в Финикии.

Zeno also attacked Euclid's proof of the equality of right angles on the grounds that it presupposes the existence of a right angle.

Характерно, что, с одной стороны, там дальше верно подмечается:
Proclus also says that an Epicurean (almost certainly Zeno but Proclus does not name him) claimed that Euclid assumes that every curve is infinitely divisible, but again this cannot be deduced from the axioms.

А с другой стороны, оказывается, что:
[H]is aim was to give substantial arguments against mathematics supporting the anti-mathematical beliefs of Epicurus.

Не такое уж и недавнее изобретение этот ваш постмодернизм.
