427 BCE - 348 BCE

Ο Πλάτων (Αρχαία Αθήνα, 427 π.Χ. – Αρχαία Αθήνα, 347 π.Χ.) ήταν αρχαίος Έλληνας φιλόσοφος από την Αθήνα, ο πιο γνωστός μαθητής του Σωκράτη και δάσκαλος του Αριστοτέλη. Το έργο του, που με τη μορφή φιλοσοφικών διαλόγων έχει σωθεί ολόκληρο (του αποδίδονται ακόμα και μερικά νόθα έργα),· άσκησε τεράστια επιρροή στην αρχαία ελληνική φιλοσοφία και γενικότερα στη δυτική φιλοσοφική παράδοση μέχρι και σήμερα. Κύριος οικοδόμος της φιλοσοφίας, οδηγητής είτε προάγγελος μεταγενεστέρων προβάσεών της, εμπνευστής άμεσα ή έμμεσα των σπουδαιότερων κοινωνικοπολιτικών οραματισμών.

Plato (428/427 or 424/423 – 348/347 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. He is widely considered a pivotal figure in the history of Ancient Greek and Western philosophy, along with his teacher, Socrates, and his most famous student, Aristotle. Plato has also often been cited as one of the founders of Western religion and spirituality. The so-called neoplatonism of philosophers such as Plotinus and Porphyry greatly influenced Christianity through Church Fathers such as Augustine. Alfred North Whitehead once noted: "the safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.
