He could have fixated on the positive and negative consequences of a person's actions; such as what impact Euthyphro's prosecution would have on his family. Or, he could have fixated on whether a particular action complies with the rules or not, such as the question of whether his father transgressed a law. These are some approaches of other philosophers. However, these were not Plato's main intrigues; Plato was eager instead to consider, what actions are most salutary for the human soul. As a result, Plato is kenned for his fixate on virtue ethics, an approach to ethics that places highlight on one's moral character.
The term “Nicomachean” was used because it is believed that this text was either dedicated to or edited by son of Aristotle named Nicomachus.

Chad Blenz PHI 385-1 27 September 2016 Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle on Educational Foundation and its Societal Role Socrates, Plato and Aristotle—three philosophers that laid the foundation for Western philosophy as we know it today. Their ideologies and approaches have proven a strong foundation for much western philosophy that has followed, particularly in regards to education and its current role in modern society. Socrates led the way with his push for truth and further reasoning, paving the road for Plato’s idealistic outlook, which led to the realistic view of Aristotle—each philosophy carving a new meaning and role of education within society. In this chain of teacher-student relationships, Socrates’ teachings directly shaped Plato’s and in turn Aristotle’s philosophy towards education and not only its meaning but also its role within society. The oldest of the three philosophers, Socrates, was born 470 BCE and passed in 399 BCE.
In his widely known work the Essay Concerning Human Understanding, Locke wanted to understand the human mind and the acquisition of knowledge. John Locke’s theory is that the knowledge that we possess was not given to us straight out of the womb and that our minds were blank slates ready to be written on, also that we learn what we know through our experiences in life. My Goal for this essay is to give a brief outline of what John Locke’s life and knowledge concluded him to create his theory that knowledge comes with experience. I will also include brief sources of other philosophers’ views on John Locke’s theory including my own perception of his theory that knowledge comes with experience. John Locke born 1632 and died 1704is the apostle of the revolution of
For many years great philosophers such as Socrates and Plato have defined and given great understanding into life and its moral ethics. Socrates was born in Athens in 469 BC. He was known to be one of the wisest men on earth. Socrates is credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy. Many individuals often as the question in their mind, “Who is the real Socrates?” Socrates never wrote philosophical text, his knowledge and philosophies were expresses based on the writings of his students such as Xenophon, Aristotle and Plato.
Those who are outside the selected community can then be directed to fill the social positions in society. Plato 's dream was never realized because it is almost impossible to make all educational institutions to provide education to students with exactly the same. Nevertheless, Plato is then developed and affect the mindset of education providers thereafter. One thing that seems then became general understanding around the world is that education is a good thing, it is important, and should be pursued by everyone. The motivation underlying the importance of education can vary.
It focuses on the body or object that can be observed. Education is the process of developing rational powers to their fullest so that a good life can be obtained. Aristotle a student of Plato believed that to understand an object we must understand its true, unchanged form. A person who is a realist is an empty vessel for knowledge, knowledge which can only come from outside of the self, through observation and experimentation. The teacher therefore needs to present material in a systematic and organised manner.
Thus, it is not of an exaggeration to say education has been very close to our society. Efforts to define and research about education have been prevalent. Through Socrates and Dewey, this paper aims to get closer to the definition of education. Although Socrates lived centuries before the contemporary period, his theories are still regarded legit. According to Socrates, there is two types
_______ In Plato’s Republic, Socrates uses the metaphor of Kallipolis to demonstrate the idea of justice in a city to allow for a closer inspection of justice in the individual. This city is ruled by a guardian class, raised from childhood to be perfect leaders, or as Socrates puts it, philosopher kings. In order for this graced individuals to come about, they must go through rigorous physical conditioning and partake in a comprehensive musical education. This musical education differs from that of a traditional Greek citizen not only in its intensity, but also in its subject matter. Many of the traditional songs, poems, epics, works of art, and works of literature used in education would be removed by virtue of the censorship Socrates deems
