Sokrates (c. 470 BCE – 399 BCE), alternatively Socrates,[1] was an ancient Greek philosopher from Athens who is credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy. He was the teacher of Plato and Alkibiades.

Biography

During his lifetime, he befriended Kassandra, an infamous Spartan misthios, becoming somewhat of a mentor to them. Sometimes assisting the mercenary in parts of their journey.[2]

During the Peloponnesian War Sokrates visited the Silver Islands around the same time as Kassandra. He posed her a dilemma.[3]

After the rebellion had overthrown the Athenian rule on the Silver Islands, Sokrates joined the celebrations, talking with interested citizens.[4]

During the plague in Athens, Sokrates was observing the situation and people there. He witnessed the death of Perikles and decided to remain in the city in order to oppose the rhetoric of Kleon the Everyman, the new leader of Athens.[5]

Later in around 425 BCE, Sokrates, alongside Aristophanes, assisted Kassandra in tarnishing the reputation of Kleon, a Sage of the Cult of Kosmos who had taken power following Perikles' death in 429 BCE.[2]

Influence and legacy

In 1511 or 1512, the Assassin Mentor Ezio Auditore da Firenze retrieved a copy of Aesop's Fables in Constantinople attributed to him.[1]

Personality and characteristics

As an exceptional rhetorician who dominated political debates, Sokrates earned the respect of the intelligentsia of Athens. He was a fervent advocate of the democratic principles of his native state,[2] and his prolific contributions to the philosophical tradition of Greece has left a lasting legacy which continued to reverberate as late as the days of the Ottoman Empire and beyond.[1] Outspoken and courageous, he also boasted an extraordinary capacity for liquor.[2]
