Plato: Biography of a Great Thinker


The Greek philosopher Plato was a student of Socrates, and teacher of Aristotle. He wrote on a wide variety of topics including Politics, Aesthetics, Cosmology, and Epistemology. To this day, we refer to “Platonic Love” and “Platonic Ideals.” Plato’s search for knowledge and truth formed the basis of much of Western Philosophy.

As Isaac Newton said, “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” Our Great Thinkers playlist celebrates influential thinkers who have changed the world for the better.
