Aristotle fundamentally disagreed with Plato, he believed that our actions in the physical realm ought to be be organized, and ethical. But quickly he found that grandfather Socrates was right about one thing: although we ought to be ethical, we are anything but!
Socrates’ great student was Plato, he’s our focus in this post. Incidentally, did you ever wonder why these 4 men, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and Alexander, were not spread out a bit more over time? Is it just by chance that they happened to be alive in successive generations, geographically identical at the exact right moment in history?
I tend to think of biblical figures as heroes. Moses comes out of retirement and starts working at 80, Abraham has a child at 90, Paul faces death all day, and Daniel survives a den of hungry lions. But have you ever thought that they would consider us as heroes?
