    According to Aristotle, Plato's best known argument in support of the Forms was the "one over many" argument. The next generation will be inferior to the previous, and rulers will be lacking. He is the author of about twenty-five dialogues, conversations between Socrates and his disciples, the most famous being Ion, Protagoras, Apology, Crito, Symposium, Phaedo, Republic, Timaeus, Meno, and Laws. Plato recognizes that there is no one actual number in the case of man or of the cosmos that perfectly sums up all these formulae. Owing to his high standard of education in art, mathematics, rhetoric and philosophy, Plato was able to assemble a comprehensive philosophy of his own via his favoured form of writing which was the dialogue.

Recently a scholar has argued that even the name Aristocles for Plato was a much later invention. Even Achilleswho was the beloved of Patroclussacrificed himself to avenge his lover, and Alcestis was willing to die for her husband Admetus. The new arrivals will choose to remain in the light, but, says Socrates, they must not.

    Socrates, he concludes, is unique in his ideas and accomplishments, unrivaled by any man from the past or present c. He is fairly good at presenting conventional positions and so, without injustice, he may be considered the embodiment of conventional thought. It is believed the school was located at an enclosed park named for a legendary Athenian hero. Socrates says that poetry is inspired by the musesand is not rational. Plato was not, like Xenophon, a chronicler of facts; he does not appear in any of his writings to have aimed at literal accuracy.
