This is epic!
WIN, 10.32 hours, that’s a fight!
I hate to be a spoilsport, but Plato’s views were similar to Socrates’ and so they probably didn’t have long arguments. Perhaps Plato vs. Aristotle might be a better choice?
Think of this as the philosophical equivalent of Ryu vs Ken.
I know, right? Being all educated and knowledgeable and shit is for losers.
James, I respectfully disagree. Simply put, there are many differences, that scholars have vivisected between the two of them. For example, Socratic thought was exemplified by radical doubt, whereas, Platonic thought was that the world is an imperfect reflection of the true form. In other words, Socrates was not a constructivist.
Plato never says anything in any of his dialogues, and all accurate accounts of Socrates that we have are by Plato. Plato was a student of Socrates, and wrote of his life until his Death. It’s hard to say what they would agree on, and disagree on.
Don’t forget Xenophon!
The world happens to know and learn much about Socretes through Plato. So what could possibly be the argument about?
As noted, what we know about Socrates is from Plato.
They both argue for a universal concept of ideas.
Aristotle takes a different view, with an emphasis on reason.
The battle between the two would be interesting.
The empiricists could then step in with the argument that we must use our senses to judge what is actually there, dealing a strong blow to
rationalists who over emphasize the power of reason
Can anyone tell me who is winning?
Kant won by pretty much combining the two in his view of the Copernican revolution
Hegel however gave it all a continuity by bringing time as a variable into the discussion…
Aristotle focused on experience, Plato focused on reason. Aristotle = empiricism, Plato = rationalism.
