What are plato's goals? what do he aim to do?

Question asked by: knowitall

Plato wanted, no doubt, to increase unity and to increase the strength of the very society that he lived in.

Philosophically he had many beliefs and wanted to show that the world we live in he believes to almost be a shadow of the real world with its perfect forms which is to be thought of as actually existing out there somewhere, and the circles and shapes we see on earth for instance are imperfect copies of that realm. An interesting idea, no doubt.
