PHILOSOPHY Plato

PHILOSOPHY PLATO

Plato was one of world's earliest and possibly greatest philosophers. Plato matters because of his devotion to making humanity more fulfilled



  • Since 2400 years ago it's a compact place only about a quarter of 1000000 people live here the refined balls theaters temple shopping arcades in gymnasiums it's warm for more than half the year. 


This is also home to the world's first true & probably greatest philosopher Plato. Into a prominent & wealthy family in the city place so devoted his life to one goal helping people to reach a state of what he termed demoniac order fulfillment.
Plato is often confused with Socrates was an older friend to talk Plato a lot but didn't write any books Plato wrote lots of them 36 will dialogues beautifully crafted scripts of imaginary discussions in which Socrates is always allotted a starring role among them the Republic the symposium the law was the mean of the apology.
 Plato had for big ideas for making life more fulfilled. First big idea think more. We rarely give ourselves time to think carefully & logically about our lives & how to lead them.
Sometimes we just go along with what the Greeks called doxa or popular opinions in the 36 books he wrote Plato showed this common sense to be riddled with errors and wrong prejudice & superstition fame is great follow your heart money is the key to a good life. The problem is popular opinions edges towards the wrong values careers in relationships Plato's onsite is no you.
It means doing a special kind of therapy philosophy subjecting your ideas to examination rather than acting on impulse if you strengthen yourself knowledge you do not get so pulled around by feelings Plato compared the role of our feelings to being dragged dangerously along by a group of wild horses. In honor of his mentor & friend Socrates this kind of examination is called a Socratic discussion you can have it with yourself for ideally with another person who isn't trying to catch you out wants to help you clarify your own ideas. Second big idea let you love a change you.
That sounds weird if you think that love means finding someone who wants you just the way you all. In the symposium Plato's play about a dinner party where a group of friends drink too much & get talking about love sex & relationships.

Plato says "true love is admiration" 

In other words the person you need to get together with should have very good qualities which you yourself lack let's say they should be re Brady for organized to warm & sincere. By getting close to this person you can become a little light they are the right person for us helps us grow 12 full potential.
For Plato in a good relationship a couple shouldn't love each other exactly as they are right now they should be committed to educating each other & to ensuring the stormy passages this inevitably involves each person should want to seduce the other into becoming a better version of themselves 3 decode the message of beauty.
Everyone pretty much likes beautiful things Plato was the first to ask why do we like them he found a fascinating reason beautiful objects a whispering important truths to us about the good life. We find things beautiful when we unconsciously sense in them qualities we need but a missing in our lives.
Gentleness harmony balance peace strength. Beautiful objects therefore have a really important function they help to educate all souls.
Ugliness is a serious matter to it parades dangerous & damaged characteristics in front of us it makes it harder to be wise kind & calm.
Plato sees artist therapeutic it's the duty of poets & painters & nowadays novelists TV producers & design is to help us to live good lives for reform society.
Plato spent a lot of time thinking how the government & society should ideally be he was the world's first Utopian thinker. In this he was inspired by Athens is great rival spotter this was a city sized machine for turning out great soldiers everything the Spartans did have a raise the children other economy was organized whom they admired how they had sex what they ate was tailored to that one goal & spotted was hugely successful from a military point of view but that wasn't Plato's concern he wanted to know how could a society get better at producing not military power but fulfilled people. In his book the Republic Plato identifies a number of changes that should be made. Athenian society was very focused on the rich like Lucia aristocrat also buy a decent sports celebrities like the books & my love of proton.

Plato wasn't impressed

Plato wasn't impressed it really matters who we admire because celebrities influence our outlook ideas & conduct & bad heroes give glamour to floors of character. 
Plato therefore wants to give Athens new celebrities replacing the current crop with ideally wise & good people he called guardians models for everyone's good development these people would be distinguished by their record of public service the modesty in simple habits that dislike of the limelight & the wide & deep experience they would be the most honest & admired people in society. He also wants to end democracy in Athens he wasn't crazy he just observe how few people think properly before they vote & therefore we get very substandard rulers.

Plato Goal

He did not want to replace democracy with a horrid dictatorship but he wanted to prevent people from voting until they'd started to think rationally that is until they become philosophers otherwise gov would just be a kind of mob rule. To help the process Plato started a school the academy in Athens which lasted a good 300 years that people's lives not just math’s & spelling but also how to be good & kind. His ultimate goal with those politicians should become philosophers the world will not be right he said until king's become philosophers or philosopher’s kings.
