10 Great Ideas from Plato

Very few historical figures have influenced modern society more than Plato, the prized pupil of Socrates, and champion of reason, education, and good citizenship.

In this presentation, we travel to classical Greece in search for Plato’s dialogues, myths, and teachings as part of our ongoing quest to find gems of moral philosophy from around the world. We found ten such gems that, we think, can reasonably inform our ethics in the modern age. Although this is by no means a comprehensive list, it represents a sincere look into wisdom that has driven philosophical discussion for about 1,400 years!
