Philosophy: Famous Greek Philosophers

Philosophy: Famous Greek Philosophers

We can't learn without pain." Aristotle

Greek philosophers were among the most influential people in history because they invented both philosophy and science. Interestingly, the Greek philosophers thought of themselves as scientists rather than thinkers. They called themselves seekers and lovers of wisdom and often studied a wide variety of subjects, including history, physics, law, sociology, politics, mathematics, and biology. By asking questions about themselves and the world around them, these philosophers helped create modern civilization. Most of them were also teachers, educating wealthy children and operating schools as well as thinkers.


Famous Greek Philosophers
  1. Pythagoras of Samos (570-495 BCE) - "As long as man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings he will never know health or peace, for as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other.": 26.4%
  2. Aristotle (c. 384-322 BCE) - "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.": 16.4%
  3. Socrates (c. 469-399 BCE) - "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.": 15.5%
  4. Plato (428-327 BCE) - "Laws are made to instruct the good, and in the hope that there may be no need of them; also to control the bad, whose hardness of heart will not be hindered from crime.": 7.3%
  5. Other: 6.4%
  6. Zeno of Elea (c. 490-430 BCE) - "In a race, the quickest runner can never overtake the slowest, since the pursuer must first reach the point whence the pursued started, so that the slower must always hold a lead.": 5.5%
  7. Democritus (c. 460-370 BCE) - "Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion.": 3.6%
  8. Diogenes of Sinope (c. 412-323 BCE) - "Dogs and philosophers do the greatest good and get the fewest rewards.": 3.6%
  9. Epicurus (c. 341-270 BCE) - "It is folly for a man to pray to the gods for that which he has the power to obtain by himself.": 2.7%
  10. Zeno of Citium (c.334-262 BCE) - "Fate is the endless chain of causation, whereby things are; the reason or formula by which the world goes on.": 2.7%
  11. Pyrrho (c. 360-270 BCE) - "By suspending judgment, by confining oneself to phenomena or objects as they appear, and by asserting nothing definite as to how they really are, one can escape the perplexities of life and attain an imperturbable peace of mind.": 1.8%

Socrates was likely the best mind attached to this survey, he is the reason behind the Socratic Oath Doctors accept upon attaining their Doctorates, pledging to preserve life by gathering all information of the patient necessary prior to treatment, in order to most likely to cure or relieve maladies. Alas, this accomplishment was never known by Socrates himself as he was put to death "by poisoning" for his part in the "Corruption of the youth of Athens" with his what would have been then, "out of the box" thinking.

This quote is in one of my favorite movies, "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure! I'm ashamed that that is the only place I recognize the quote from, but I was always bad with Greek philosophy in college. I do know a fair bit about Greek mythology though, which makes me feel like less of an idiot!

Yeah this is so true because when you feel you know nothing it helps you to learn more but when you think you know it all you will end up knowing nothing Socrates is a very good and sound philosopher

All of the Philosopher guys on the list are gurus, but the number one of them all is the Pythagoras.
Why? because most of his research and proverb do make sense and do always come true.
But the proverb that he make above is never true, why? because God has giving man to have dominion above all creature, animal and Bird in the air.

Plato was the one who started the first University in the world. He was very influential in Greece and succeeded in teaching other people. Unfortunately, some of his ideas was not accepted by the government at that time, this led to him being punished.

Aristotle was the famous Greek philosopher I knew of. His name stands as the sole philosopher when the subject of philosophy is discussed. Aristotle, together with other philosophers changed the world, they form the basis of today's civilization and brought about ideas that led to the understanding of some facts at the time. Although they are long gone, their philosophy is still very much in use today.

There are a lot of wisdoms that can be said but only few can be applied to oneself. It only depends on what you are currently facing. Sharing wisdoms of philosphy to someone is also good, and it is also a good virtue to have one for yourself to apply it on your daily life.

This was a difficult decision for me to make, as I take several of these to heart every day, specifically the statement from Pyrrho about attaining peace by observing reality. Also, Zeno's paradox, because it is an example of something that is theoretically true, but fails utterly in reality... a sort of greek zen koan.

I stuck with Aristotle, the ability to look at (and then discard) another viewpoint, different from your own, seems to be a lost art these days. Thinking has become secondary to reacting, but the person who can truly sympathize and understand different people will be welcome almost anywhere.

i know that there re other great philosophers and thinkers around the world,but the Greek guys just stands out especially Aristotle and some others. i noticed,they give themselves to a lot of thinking and observation before conclusions are made.for you to entertain other thought,suggestion or viewpoint you know you ll not accept does not just show you re educated but shows you have a unique view to life- value and respect for others

Yea, Socrates is a very great Philosopher I admire. this particular quote of his is so real to be true. When you claim you know nothing, you are liable to know even much more better than what you had known. I give Socrates a "5-star rate" for this.

Yea, this is quite true. We as humans should respect the fact the the lower animals also have their own part of life to enjoy on earth. We being heartless and ruthless to other lower animals will still make us vulnerable to the aspect of doing same to fellow humans. Respect animal Lives... Great Pythagoras Of Samos.

Tough one.
I like this quote from Pythagoras better.
But Aristotle and Socrates are the most famous philosophers.

There are many Greek philosophers, but Socrates is definitely the best one and the most well known. Many of his quotes still influence us today and his philosophy shapes our modern society. Many people don't even know him that well, but his influence is important whether they realize it or not.

People nowadays should definitely read more about Greek philosophers, they may learn something of value other than what people is doing on Facebook, also politicians should really make an effort to learn how to run a country in a real democracy, all they learn in school nowadays is to fill their pockets with people's money.

Greek philosophers have known initiators of modern science in Europe. We know them so throughout history. They found many scientific facts and their discoveries still amaze the modern world. Me they are all known since I learned at school about them, and I do not know who to give priority

Greek philosophers shaped and laid the foundation of modern history and civilization. Who realises that Pythagoras were the first one to argue that the earth was round, 2000 years before science and church agreed to it. Anyway, who do you think was the greatest Ancient Greek Philosophers.

This saying is actually true!, It talks about the behaviorism of a person if he or she has this personalities on him or her no peace or success will come to him or her. A negative as it sounds will always be negative in answers! Just saying!

Aristotle was one of the few philosopher whose ideas and philosophy sank deep into my consciousness. Just take a look at this one he gave here. The ability to hear out an idea without necessarily having to accept it. In our world today, this is almost going extinct.
