At least according to Heidegger, both Heraclitus and Parmenides showed the inherent errors of metaphysical thinking prior to its coming into being in formal practice.
One of the annoying things about philosophy is that whatever you say there's always a presocratic who said it first.

That doesn't mean that, for instance, Democritus was right about atoms for the right reasons. All this getting stuff right about the world on the basis of pure thought is a dangerous conceit.
