About Plato:
Plato (Greek: Plátōn, "wide, broad-shouldered") (428/427 BC – 348/
347 BC) was an ancient Greek philosopher, the second of the great trio of
ancient Greeks –Socrates, Plato, originally named Aristocles, and Aristotle– who between them laid the philosophical foundations of Western
culture. Plato was also a mathematician, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of
higher learning in the western world. Plato is widely believed to have
been a student of Socrates and to have been deeply influenced by his
teacher's unjust death. Plato's brilliance as a writer and thinker can be
witnessed by reading his Socratic dialogues. Some of the dialogues, letters, and other works that are ascribed to him are considered spurious.
Plato is thought to have lectured at the Academy, although the pedagogical function of his dialogues, if any, is not known with certainty. They
have historically been used to teach philosophy, logic, rhetoric, mathematics, and other subjects about which he wrote. Source: Wikipedia

Politicus or Statesman is more ideal; the form and institutions of the
State are more clearly drawn out in the Laws; as works of art, the Symposium and the Protagoras are of higher excellence. But no other Dialogue of Plato has the same largeness of view and the same perfection of
style; no other shows an equal knowledge of the world, or contains more
of those thoughts which are new as well as old, and not of one age only
but of all. Nowhere in Plato is there a deeper irony or a greater wealth of
humour or imagery, or more dramatic power. Nor in any other of his
writings is the attempt made to interweave life and speculation, or to
connect politics with philosophy. The Republic is ...
