Known to have one of the greatest influences on modern Western thought, and to have taught his ways to Aristotle in the Academy, Plato is considered one of the greatest minds and logical rationalists in world history. While his works often border mysticism, his continual pursuit of ethical answers based on logical processes still influences law, politics, education, ethics, philosophy, and psychology even today.
Not much is known about his childhood and young days but he was of some higher social class. He wrote poetry and plays and had access to the best libraries and teachers available in his day. He knew much about the outside world, mainly through reading and intimate discussions with others. He is considered to be one of the earliest philosophers.
(428 BC - 347 BC)
