Died: Athens, Greece
Plato was a philosopher in Classical Greece and the founder of the Academy in Athens. He is widely considered the pivotal figure in the development of Western philosophy.
For me, the ideal commonality between fools and wise men is educational in nature, a pedagogy of humility surrounded by what you don't know, including yourself. The emphasis is on learning, of which no man is governed, limited or full.
The common ground between Aristotle and Plato is the terra firma where all language animals roam and the rational mind ebbing and flowing on the currents of our cultural milieu.
