This paper presents an overview of Plato?s philosophical dialogues. The author examines of some of Plato?s main philosophical beliefs on human nature, the importance of morality in a society, and that gaining knowledge for the sake of having knowledge would help people lead more truth filled and moral lives.
“Since the beginning of our history, we have had many great philosophers guide us along the path of our societal evolution. Some were religiously based while others were secularly based but they all had something to contribute. Few of them though could compare to Plato when it came to understanding human nature and the ways of society more than Plato did. Plato is considered one of the greatest philosophers of all time. He had knowledge of the workings of the human mind and heart that kept him light years ahead of his time. Plato taught many things that can still be applied to today’s society. As one of the heavyweights in the field of philosophy Plato covered more ground in his teachings than many others have ever done since.”
