I thought it would be an interesting exercise to begin a series of 10 entries that attempt to discover the greatest teachers in history. As with any such exercise, I hope this series helps identify common traits among these teachers. I also anticipate some discussion about each entry as well as suggestions for future entries.
Please note that the order of when any teacher appears is not indicative of any value I may assign.
The first teacher I will submit is Plato. I found this page from the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy useful.
Please feel free to comment on the inclusion of Plato in this series and to offer suggestions for future entries.
