This term is most often used to refer to Plato (c427-347 BC) a Greek philosopher. He was a pupil of the Athenian philosopher Socrates, who was considered to have gone against the Athenian state and forced to drink hemlock. Plato wrote about Socrates' life, death and beliefs, but is even more famous as the author of the "Republic" a book in which he outlines his ideal state, where life would be founded on reason and the wisest would rule. He believed that there is an "Idea" of goodness or perfection,which we can attain when we learn to govern our lives according to reason.

He founded an Academy for scholars in Athens in 387 BC; one of the students there was Aristotle, another founding father of philosophy and later tutor to Alexander the Great.

I would like to say that my wife had been working as a computer operator for some time, so this job is really cool. In fact, once I thought that it would be a reasonable idea for me to include additional income for myself, so in this case I made a solid decision to find an additional occupation in order to fulfill my desire. Therefore, I used these remote job offers where I found my job that makes me enough money. Believe me on a word, exactly this site will also help you find the best way to have extra money.
