What was Plato's contribution to the atomic theory?
One of the most intriguing concepts that caught the imagination of Plato around the time of 350 B.C. was the existence and uniqueness of the five regular solids, which are now known as the five "Platonic solids". It is not certain who first discovered these regular solids first, but many believe that it was spoke of as early as the Pythagoreans. However, sources including Euclid indicate that Theaetetus, a friend of Plato's, was the first to write the first complete account of these five shapes. Plato's theory ultimately constructs the basis for what is to be Book XIII of Euclid's Elements. Plato, in any case, was extremely impressed by these definitively regular solids, and later on in life was intrigued to write his theory of everything in relation to these five polyhedrons. (Devlin 115) The most intriguing aspect of these shapes to Plato at the time was that these were the only shapes that constituted perfect symmetry within a non-planar set of points. The names of these shapes are the hexahedron (cube), tetrahedron, octahedron, icosahedron and the dodecahedron. It is very clear that each of the sides of these polyhedrons must not only be a regular polygon, but must be equal to ever
Asked in BMW, Car Buying, Manufacturing, Plato
How good are bmw's with 150000 mileage on the clock when its on a p plate?
They are only as good as the Service History shows. Make sure the car has a service history and check the stamps. Check that there isn't any blue smoke coming from the exhaust when you start it. 150,000 on a beemer is nothing, as long as it's been well looked after. If it's a dog and it's been beaten, walk away.

Asked in Plato
Was Plato an atheist?
In book ten of "The Laws" Plato takes a dim view of atheists and their potential impact on the state. He goes to great lengths describing their treatment and rehabilitation or punishment. However, the term atheist, in modern times, has come to mean non-belif in the Christian god, or at least the Abrahamic god common to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In his specific sense Plato was an atheist.
Did Socrates get married?
Socrates was married to the legendary Xanthippe (shocking isn't it?), a younger woman famous for her sharp tongue and said to be the only person to have beaten Socrates in an argument. Her name is now synonymous with a shrewish wife. Answer Socrates was married to the legendary Xanthippe, a younger woman famous for her sharp tongue and said to be the only person to have beaten Socrates in an argument. Her name is now synonymous with a shrewish wife. Socrates was married to Xanthippe and had one son with her. At the same time he had a girlfriend named Myrto. He had two sons with Myrto. Some writters claim at last he married Myrto. Xanthippe may have become such a nagging and shrew wife because Socrates wouldn't except money for his philosophy meetings. This left them broke to properly raise a family.
What is information on the Jubilee Grace MorningStar Academies and their founders?
