(469-399 B.C.E.) Bibliography Internet Sources In his use of criticalreasoning, by his unwavering commitment to truth, and through the vivid example of his own life, fifth-century Athenian Socrates set the standard for all subsequentWestern philosophy. Since he left no literary legacy of his own, we are dependentupon contemporary writers like Aristophanes and Xenophon for our informationabout his life and work. As a pupil of Archelaus during his youth, Socrates showed agreat deal of interest in the scientific theories of Anaxagoras, but he later abandonedinquiries into the physical world for a dedicated investigation of the development of moral character. Having served with some distinction as a soldier at Delium andAmphipolis during the Peloponnesian War, Socrates dabbled in the political turmoilthat consumed Athens after the War, then retired from active life to work as astonemason and to raise his children with his wife, Xanthippe. After inheriting amodest fortune from his father, the sculptor Sophroniscus, Socrates used his marginalfinancial independence as an opportunity to give full-time attention to inventing the practice of philosophical dialogue.
Born in Athens in 427 BC. Died in Athens 347 BC. Symbol of the start of Western Systematic Philosophy. Student of Socrates -- until the death of Socrates in399 B.C. Provider of the concept of Abstract Universals or Ideal Forms. Presenter, inhis Republic, of the concept of a utopian intentional community. Serious student of 
mathematics and the ideas of Pythagorus. Traveled to Sicily to participate in a political experiment. Twenty years with his student Aristotle. Founder of an Academy-- which survived his death for several hundred years. Suggested that knowledge andlearning may be a matter of remembering.
