Socrates and Plato
May 28, 2006 09:04 AM
It is rather interesting for anyone to say that Socrates was not Plato's master.
The first third part of Plato's extensive works is most influenced by Socrates and Socrates is a major player in those Dialogues.
Plato openly recognized Socrates influence over him and made extensive homage to his master, for instance in "Apology of Socrates".
Plato's inner source is linked -- as it is well-known -- to certain Pythagorean manuscripts he acquired. Yet he was a pupil of Socrates'.
Best regards, Carlos.
