How might Socrates apply to your lives and culture today?
Socrates' method of teaching (known as the Socratic method) is often considered the foundation of all modern education. His pupil, Plato, started the worlds first university called The Academy and began a tradition which survives today. His teachings regarding wisdom, truth and justice had a massive influence on western philosophy and still resonate with modern thought. Of course what we know about Socrates we mostly only know from the writings of Plato, and it could be argued that he therefor is the truly influential one.

What are the three greatest Greek philosophers and one contribution made by each?
The three most prominent Greek philosophers today, who have had the greatest direct influence on philosophy through the past 2500 or so centuries, are probably Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. Nothing of Socrates' philosophy exists today in its original form, but Plato's writings often use Socrates as a character in a dialogue, so great debate exists even today about how much of Plato's ideas were his own and how much were Socrates'.
