#41: Plato

Total Translations: 1481

No college education is complete without Plato, the revolutionary Greek thinker who studied under Socrates and instructed Aristotle. Widely considered the founder of Western political philosophy, Plato’s best-known work is The Republic, which argues for a radical shift in society and hierarchies. The work also calls for a ban on flutes, though Plato must have had a change of heart regarding that particular suggestion, given that a flute performance was apparently his dying request.
