Product Description
This is a bundle of three power point presentations on the three great ancient Greek Philosophers; Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. These three are credited as being the founders of Western philosophy.

Each is presented as individual biographies. These are more towards the high school, college and adult students. All three have the same colorful "look & feel" and are "editable" so you can customize and update as you wish.

Power Point #1, is a presentation on "Socrates" and contains 20 slides that summarizes his biography and identifies his primary philosophies.

Socrates was the first of the three great ancient Greek philosophers. We know of his life through the writings of his students, including Plato and Xenophon. He had a "difficult" personality and eventually offended key people who had him put on trial for his political positions and given the death sentence; where he chose to end his life by drinking hemlock.

Socrates is His Socratic method," laid the groundwork for Western systems of logic and philosophy. He is known for his contribution to the field of ethics and to the concepts of Socratic irony. He always emphasized the importance of the mind over the relative unimportance of the human body. This credo inspired Plato’s philosophy of dividing reality into 2 separate realms, the world of the senses and the world of ideas, declaring that the latter was the only important one.

Power Point #2, is a presentation on "Plato" and contains 18 slides that summarizes his biography and identifies his primary philosophies.

Plato was a student of Socrates and a teacher of Aristotle. His writings explored justice, beauty and equality, and also contained discussions in aesthetics, political philosophy, theology, cosmology, epistemology and the philosophy of language.

As a young man, Plato experienced 2 major events that set his course in life. One was meeting the great Greek philosopher Socrates the other was the Peloponnesian War in which Athens was defeated by Sparta, replacing Athens' democracy with in Sparta's oligarchy

After the death of Socrates, he traveled for 12 years and became a prolific writer. he founded "The Academy" the first institute of higher learning. It was later closed by Emperor Justinian, fearing it to be a threat to Christianity.

His work covered a broad spectrum of interests and ideas: mathematics, science and nature, morals and political theory. His beliefs on the importance of mathematics in education have proven to be essential for understanding the entire universe. His work on the use of reason to develop a more fair and just society that is focused on the equality of individuals established the foundation for modern democracy.

Power Point #3, is a presentation on "Aristotle" and contains 26 slides that summarizes his biography and identifies his primary philosophies.

Aristotle was a student of Plato who tutored Alexander the Great. He founded the Lyceum Library where members researched subjects ranging from science and math to philosophy and politics, and nearly everything in between including Art.

He was a scientist, a both a land and marine biologist, meteorologist and philosopher. He created the concept of logic, universal process of reasoning that would allow man to learn every conceivable thing about reality.

His work came to lay the foundation of more than 7 centuries of philosophy, influencing ideas from late antiquity all the way through the Renaissance. Aristotle’s influence on Western thought in the humanities and social sciences is largely considered unparalleled, with the exception of his teacher Plato’s contributions, and Plato’s teacher Socrates before him.

I also offer each of these as individual power point presentations on my store under the category Ancient Civilizations - Key Figures.
