Plato is the first scientist whose work we still possess. He is our first writer to interpret the natural world mathematically, and also the first theorist of mathematics in the natural sciences. As no one else before or after, he set out why we should suppose a link between nature and mathematics, a link that has never been stronger than it is.

Plato gave voice to it, and we find the marrow of the Oriental Wisdom in his dialectic. He seems to have joined the occult lore of the East, the conceptions of other teachers, and the under-meaning of the arcane rites, the physical and metaphysical learning of India and Asia, and wrought the whole into forms adapted to European comprehension. In BC Aristotle, at the age of seventeen, became a student at Plato's Academy in Athens. At the time that Aristotle joined the Academy it had been operating for twenty years. Plato was not in Athens, but rather he was on his first visit to Syracuse.

Plato (/ ˈ p l eɪ t oʊ / PLAY-toe; Greek: Πλάτων Plátōn, pronounced [plá.tɔːn] in Classical Attic; / or / – / BC) was an Athenian philosopher during the Classical period in Ancient Greece, founder of the Platonist school of thought, and the Academy, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

The Birth of Mathematics in the Age of Plato. Ivor Bulmer-Thomas & Francois Lasserre - - Philosophical Quarterly 16 (64) Aristotle's Philosophy of Mathematics. Abstract. There is a famous passage in the Republic which has been read in drastically different ways. Some have gone so far as to see in it Plato “banning sense-perception from the science of astronomy” (Heath), 2 advising astronomers “to replace observation by speculation” (Neuge-bauer).

3 Others have found in it nothing worse than a critique of sterile methodological empiricism and. Plato is also remembered for the body of works that he left behind. ‘The Republic,’ a Socratic dialogue written in around BC, is one of his most famous works.

In this book, Plato has defined his concept of justice and also the characteristics of a just city-state and just man. A book can change a mind, but only if that mind is ready to be changed. The mind of a particular child formed, up to the age of reason, in a time of war, is liable to be ready to ask questions of a particular kind about the human condition – still more so, when, at the age of eight, that child sees, on the front-page of the newspaper, images of Belsen and Hiroshima, images that would never.
