Plato. Caricature of the Ancient Greek philosopher Plato (427-347 BC). Plato's spirit of rational inquiry led to today's scientific method. His writings shaped and continue to have a profound influence on Western thought. Along with his mentor, Socrates, and his student, Aristotle, Plato helped to lay the foundations of natural philosophy, science, and Western philosophy. He founded the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.
