Plato.. Plato is one of the world’s best known and most widely read and studied philosophers. He was the student of Socrates and the teacher of Aristotle, and he wrote in the middle of the fourth century B.C.E. in ancient Greece. Though influenced primarily by Socrates, to the extent that Socrates is usually the main character in many of Plato’s writings, he was also influenced by Heraclitus, Parmenides, and the Pythagoreans.

The Apology of Socrates by Plato is probably my favorite read because it touches on so many different topics. Socrates continues his pursuit of enlightenment during and even after his death sentence.
