Plato was born about 428 B.C. in an aristocratic family of Athens. At the age of 20, Plato became a puplic of Socrates and remained with him, learning his ideas till his death. The execution of his teacher, Socrates, had a profound effect on him and he left Athens in disgust. Thereafter, he toured in different parts of thw world including Europe. West Asia, Sicily etc. During this period of traveling, Plato met Dionysius I, the autocratic ruler of Syracuse. In 387 B.C. Plato returned to Athens and founded a school known as Academy for preparing ideal citizens and rulers. The subjects taught in this Academy included mathematics, ethics, geometry, politics and philosophy. For the study of philosophy, Plato considered a knowledge of geometry essential. Aristotle, the greatest pupil of Plato, joined this Academy in 367 B.C. as a student and remained there till the death of Plato in 347 B.C.
