Right or Wrong? (A depiction on the fact that even educators can be challenged if you test the words that are spoken by the teachers.) In the year 427 BC a baby boy was born to distinguished family in Athens. He was born into a family of four. With his brothers Glaucon and Adeimantus his life was what everyone else envied. Plato had everything, but one day he met a man that was teaching in the town square. Socrates shared idea about wisdom, justice and the true meaning of life. When Plato was twenty-eight his teacher was executed for the words he had spoken. Plato was angry for what the Athenians had done to a wise man. In response Plato quite politics and became a philosopher. His new life mission became to share the message his teacher died sharing. He created his own views, but published what is known as the Republic. These views and ideas have been read by thousands of people. However, even though people see all that Plato wrote and there are things that an individual might agree with there are also things that are considered controversies. Plato was a man who wanted people to question what he said. Plato wanted students who would challenge him and not be led blindly. Glaucon was the perfect student who listened to what people had to say and then challenging the information provided. “The whole function of education is not to put knowledge into the soul, but to bring out the best things that are latent to the soul, and to do so by directing it to the right objects.”
