The Republic Of Plato (Video)
Again something I stumbled upon. The “Republic” was the book which made me first discover the love for knowledge, and what Plato called the “philosopher king”, was what inspired me to take my education into my own hands.
“Plato (428BCE – 347BCE), was an ancient Greek philosopher, the second of the great trio of ancient Greeks –succeeding Socrates and preceding Aristotle– who between them laid the philosophical foundations of Western culture. Plato was also a mathematician, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the western world. Plato is widely believed to have been a student of Socrates, and to have been as much influenced by his thinking as by what he saw as his teacher’s unjust death.”
