Plato

[/trx_title][vc_column_text]Plato was a Greek philosopher born in Athens during the Classical period in Ancient Greece. He founded the Platonist school of thought and the Academy, the first institution of higher learning on the European continent.

Along with his teacher, Socrates, and his most famous student, Aristotle, Plato is a central figure in the history of Ancient Greek philosophy and the Western and Middle Eastern philosophies descended from it.[a] He has also been immensely influential in religion and spirituality.[5] The so-called neoplatonism of his later interpreter Plotinus greatly influenced both Christianity (through Church Fathers such as Augustine) and Islamic philosophy (through Al-Farabi and others). Alfred North Whitehead once noted: “the safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.”[6]

Plato was an innovator of the written dialogue and dialectic forms in philosophy. Plato is also considered the founder of Western political philosophy. His most famous contribution is the theory of Forms known by pure reason, in which Plato presents a solution to the problem of universals known as Platonism (also ambiguously called either Platonic realism or Platonic idealism). He is also the namesake of Platonic love and the Platonic solids.

His own most decisive philosophical influences are usually thought to have been, along with Socrates, the pre-Socratics PythagorasHeraclitus and Parmenides, although few of his predecessors’ works remain extant and much of what we know about these figures today derives from Plato himself. Unlike the work of nearly all of his contemporaries, Plato’s entire body of work is believed to have survived intact for over 2,400 years. Although their popularity has fluctuated, Plato’s works have consistently been read and studied.[[/vc_column_text][trx_skills width=”70%”][trx_skills_item title=”Politics” value=”50%” color=”#de3242″ style=”1″][/trx_skills_item][trx_skills_item title=”Dialogues” value=”10%” color=”#de3242″ style=”1″][/trx_skills_item][trx_skills_item title=”Philosophy” value=”40%” color=”#de3242″ style=”1″][/trx_skills_item][/trx_skills][trx_socials size=”tiny” shape=”round” socials=”facebook=https://www.facebook.com/AncoraThemes/|twitter=https://twitter.com/ancora_themes|instagramm=https://www.instagram.com/ancora_themes/” top=”small”][/trx_socials][/trx_column_item][/trx_columns][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1456408097084{background-color: #f5f5f4 !important;}”][vc_column][trx_content bottom=”large”][trx_title type=”4″ style=”underline” align=”center” css=”margin-top: 1.8em;” bottom=”tiny”]Latest Books[/trx_title]
