Unlike the natural philosophers preced him Plato describes the world cognitively. He proposes Plato's ideas are still the bedrock of psychology today.
When we think psychology our mind usually gravitates to people like Freud or Yung, but all modern ideas can be traced back to Plato. He was among the first to discuss the soul, about God as a abstraction of perfect form etc ....
We have all sorts of divisions we operate with:
All of these started with Plato. He looked into diferent ways of knowing, and looked into which states of mind are more reliable than others. He divided the world into:
Our senses are not good enough to understand true reality. What we may take as reality might as well be just shadows of the real thing.
Is Plato's most famous parable - about getting more connected with reality: Imagine people are chained sitting in a cave looking at a wall on which they see nothing but the shadows of real things behind their backs. One of the people breaks free and experience true reality. But he can not explain it to his fellow men, because they lack the experience and the vocabulary to understand him.
This is the Matrix story: People living in a simulated reality. Neo escapes the matrix and gets on the journey to free the others.

Plato is such an influential thinker: our version of Christianity and some of the most popular movie franchises can be traced back to him.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
