PHILOSPHERS Philosophy- the study of basic truths and ideas about the universe SOCRATES Socrates: 470-399 B.C. He believed in questioning his students in the search for truth and critical thinking so they might examine

their beliefs. This question and answer type teaching is called the Socratic Method. He was sentenced to death for being accused of causing young people to rebel. He died by drinking poison. PLATO Plato: 427-347 B.C. One of Socrates students. He wrote a book called The Republic

which didnt describe a democracy but instead where a philosopher-king ruled. It would be a king that was wise, clam, and reasonable. He started the Academy- a school of higher learning which stayed open for over 900 years. ARISTOTLE Aristotle: 384-322 B.C. Platos student He invented a method of debating

Hippocrates: 460375 B.C. Physician and teacher Changed medicine by insisting illnesses were not caused by evil spirits but originated in the body. -It is possible to draw a straight line from any point to any point. -It is possible to extend a finite straight line continuously in a straight

line. (In modern terminology, this says that a line segment can be extended past either of its endpoints to form an arbitrarily large line segment.) -It is possible to create a circle with any center and distance (radius). -All right angles are equal to one another. (A right angle is, by Euclid's definition, "half" of a straight angle: that is, if a line segment has one of its endpoints on another line segment and divides the second segment into two angles that are equal to each other, the two equal angles are called right angles.) -If a straight line falling on (crossing) two straight lines makes the interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, the two straight lines, if produced indefinitely, meet on that side on which the

angles are less than the two right angles. -Things which are equal to the same thing are equal to each other. -If equals are added to equals, the wholes (sums) are equal. -If equals are subtracted from equals, the remainders (differences) are equal. -Things that coincide with one another are equal to one another. -The whole is greater than the part.
