Description

Plato studied under Socrates and was Aristotle's teacher. Together these three Greeks developed the basis of philosophical thinking for the entire Western world. Plato was also a writer, mathematician, and founder of the Academy in Athens, which was the first university in Europe. Critita was one of his later dialogues, which told the story of the kingdom of Atlantis. Atlantis tried and failed to conquer Athens. Critis was to be part of a trilogy beginning with Timaeus and followed by Hernocrates. (The final volume was never written.)
