    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.. He is widely considered the pivotal figure in Era: Ancient philosophy. Socrates compares the visible realm of the world, the world of Belief, to the cave. The prisoner's upward journey to freedom and the things above is like the journey of the soul to the world of Ideas, the world of Forms, including the Form of Goodness.

    Plato’s middle to later works, including his most famous work, the Republic, offer Plato’s own philosophy, where the main character speaks for Plato himself. The Republic offers us a way of living that is orderly, harmonious and responsible, where we work together for the common good, and in which our rulers first attain mastery over. The theory of Forms or theory of Ideas is a philosophical theory, concept, or world-view, attributed to Plato, that the physical world is not as real or true as timeless, absolute, unchangeable ideas. According to this theory, ideas in this sense, often capitalized and translated as "Ideas" or "Forms", are the non-physical essences of all things, of which objects and matter in the physical world are merely .

    Summary and Analysis Book VI: Section II Summary. Socrates adamantly denies that he can identify a single state at the time of this dialogue that might prove fruitful for the growth of a philosopher-ruler; he says that, because of his environment (the society in which he finds himself), the naturally good, budding philosopher becomes warped. Intelligible realm. Plato divides all of existence up into two parts: the visible realm and the intelligible realm. The intelligible realm cannot be sensed, but only grasped with the intellect. It consists of the Forms. Only the intelligible realm can be the object of knowledge. Kallipolis. Kallipolis is the Greek term for Plato’s just city.

Bussell. While it is generally recognized that Plato rejects the democratic idea of personal freedom, it is often overlooked that he offers in its place an alternative, “aristocratic,” conception of freedom, originating in the moral psychology of Socrates and reflecting a popular view of freedom as opposed to slavery.

But Plato was worried about the wrong sort of freedom: Athens was a free-for-all for the worst opinion-sellers. Crazy religious notions and sweet sounding, but dangerous, ideas sucked up mass enthusiasm and lead Athens to disastrous governments and misguided wars (like a fateful attack on Sparta).

Plato on freedom and beauty Plato explores the concepts of freedom and beauty from very unconventional angles in  Republic; unusual in the context of both contemporary and modern understandings of the two terms.

Freedom to a contemporary audience of Athenians could be defined as the ability to think and do as one pleases. In Book VII of the Republic, Plato intimates that someone “returning from a mode of existence which involves greater lucidity” () would “much prefer, as Homer describes it, ‘being a slave labouring for someone else – someone without property’ [ ] than share [the] beliefs and [the] life” of ignorant “people who [have, by virtue of being (born) astute, managed to accrue a great deal of] status and.

A philosophy of freedom can be seen throughout his works, Author: Siobhán McLoughlin. Discussions of property from the time of Plato and Aristotle to the present have revolved around four principal themes: its relation to politics, ethics, economics, and psychology.

The political argument in favor of property holds that (unless distributed in a grossly unfair manner) it promotes stability and constrains the power of government. In the VII book of the "Republic" Plato displays his well-known myth of the cavern, the most important one as it embraces the cardinal points of his philosophy.

He wants it to be a metaphor "of our nature regarding its education and its lack of education", that is, serves to illustrate issues regarding the theory of knowledge. Now that we've been introduced to Plato's theory of forms in The Republic, let's consider the big picture of his view of reality.

A concise but informative summary and analysis of book one of Plato's Republic.
