Meet the Author

Plato (Greek: Plátōn, "wide, broad-shouldered") (428/427 BC –
348/347 BC) was an ancient Greek philosopher, the second of the
great trio of ancient Greeks –Socrates, Plato, originally named
Aristocles, and 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 deeply influenced by his teacher's unjust death.
Plato's brilliance as a writer and thinker can be witnessed by
reading his Socratic dialogues. Some of the dialogues, letters, and
other works that are ascribed to him are considered spurious. Plato
is thought to have lectured at the Academy, although the
pedagogical function of his dialogues, if any, is not known with
certainty. They have historically been used to teach philosophy,
logic, rhetoric, mathematics, and other subjects about which he
wrote.
