Plato

One of Socrates’ best students was Plato. He was born around 427 B.C. Plato wrote about an ideal government in a book titled The Republic. He did not describe a democracy. Instead, he believed that a philosopher-king should rule This king would be wise, calm, and reasonable (like a Philosopher). Plato started an important school of higher learning called the Academy. It stayed open for about 900 years. The Academy was not a school or college in the modern sense. Rather, it was an informal association of people interested in studying philosophy, mathematics and astronomy with Plato as a guide. Think of it as a club for the really smart people of the ancient world.

4 In Our Time: S19/40 Plato’s Republic (June 29 2017)

20 dec. 2019

Is it always better to be just than unjust? That is the central question of Plato’s Republic, discussed here by Melvyn Bragg and guests. Writing in c380BC, Plato applied this question both to the individual and the city-state, considering earlier and current forms of government in Athens and potential forms, in which the ideal city might be ruled by philosophers. The Republic is arguably Plato’s best known and greatest work, a dialogue between Socrates and his companions, featuring the allegory of the cave and ideas about immortality of the soul, the value of poetry to society, and democracy’s vulnerability to a clever demagogue seeking tyranny.

With Angie Hobbs, Professor of the Public Understanding of Philosophy at the University of Sheffield; MM McCabe, Professor of Ancient Philosophy Emerita at King’s College London; and James Warren, Fellow of Corpus Christi College and a Reader in Ancient Philosophy at the University of Cambridge. Producer: Simon Tillotson.

Platonic philosophy of “Idealism” for Humanities class (Dr. George Brooks) Note: Several viewers have brought to my attention the audio problem of this only coming out of one speaker–my apologies, these videos were made by digital media students at the college and are of uneven quality. It is better to watch this with your internal computer speakers rather than under headphones or any stereo set-up. I will try to get this fixed when the pandemic is over and I can return to campus.

7 Intro to Plato – Peter Kreeft (Lecture 1)

18 okt. 2016

 
Fredrik Larsson
This is pure gold. I would also love the rest of the lectures. Peter Kreeft is the very living proof of the courageous defence of the borders between, on one hand, the following of a nonsensical tradition until it hits rock bottom and, on the other, to go back to basics and durable principals and renewing them for our time. Peter Kreefts philosophical and religious world will work beautifully when applied today, tomorrow and a thousand years from now. His bringing us back the objective Truth is probably the best (and perhabs only) thing which will be a lasting contribution to philosophy from our time. What a line-up Christianity is blessed with: Cardinal Newman, Chesterton, Lewis, Gaiman and Kreeft. OMNIA MUTANTUR, NIHIL INTERIT. God is not dead, but Nietzsche is. Self-destructivity and the culture of death will not last. By some strange coincidence it seems to destroy itself and die.

Plato 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.”

Few individuals have influenced the world and many of today’s thinkers like Plato. He created the first Western university and was teacher to Ancient Greece’s greatest minds, including Aristotle. But even he wasn’t perfect. Along with his great ideas, Plato had a few that haven’t exactly stood the test of time. Wisecrack gives a brief rundown of a few of Plato’s best and worst ideas.

4 mei 2018

Pierre Grimes, PhD, is a specialist in classical Greek philosophy. He is the founder of the American Philosophical Practitioners Association. He is also founder of the Noetic Society in the Los Angeles area. He is author of Philosophical Midwifery: A New Paradigm for Understanding Human Problems, Socrates and Jesus: A Dialogue in Heaven, and Unblocking: Removing Blocks to Understanding. He is also a decorated veteran of the second world war.

Here he shares his passion for Plato as his greatest spiritual inspiration. He distinguishes between the Socratic dialogue and the Platonic dialectic. He highlights passages from some of Plato’s dialogues. He describes the similarities between the emphasis on the “self” in Plato and in Buddhism, and laments that modern, western philosophy has lost this emphasis on self-knowledge.

14 Homer and Plato with Pierre Grimes

Pierre Grimes, PhD, is a specialist in classical Greek philosophy. He is the founder of the American Philosophical Practitioners Association. He is also founder of the Noetic Society in the Los Angeles area. He is author of Philosophical Midwifery: A New Paradigm for Understanding Human Problems, Socrates and Jesus: A Dialogue in Heaven, and Unblocking: Removing Blocks to Understanding. He is also a decorated veteran of the second world war.

Here he maintains that, unlike in Plato, deep psychotherapeutic insights can be found in Homer. In fact, Pierre’s development of “philosophical midwifery” is largely based on Homer. Plato was more of a pure mystic. Both Homer and Plato probably participated in the Eleusinian mysteries. In the Republic, Plato argues that Homer should not be taught to young children. Instead, the philosopher kings should make up “noble lies” for the benefit of the people.
