Great Greek thinkers
Greek classicism begins with Socrates, his pupil Plato and his very ambitious listener Aristotle. Without these gentlemen our view of the world today would be quite different. The thinkers who appeared at that time increasingly turned their attention away from nature and towards man during the period of radical change in classical music. In the decades of the wars, methods were sought to strengthen the human individual physically and mentally.

Socrates and the art of midwifery.
Socrates lived and worked in the 5th century B.C. (*469 B.C. to 399 B.C.) and was probably the most important link in the development of ethical principles between Western and modern thought. He also provided the design for the method of structured dialogue, also known as the "art of midwifery". The fact that he was sentenced to death and devoted himself to philosophical questions with his students until his last breath in prison contributed significantly to Socrates' fame. Out of respect for the laws of the time, he did not consider the possibility of escape.
All important schools of philosophy refer to Socrates. The term "master of all masters" - a phrase by Michel de Montaigne - has left its mark on his merits right up to the modern age.
Quote: Karl Jaspers wrote: "To have Socrates before one's eyes is one of the indispensable prerequisites of our philosophizing". (Source: Wikipedia)
