Socrates (470-399 BC) is one of the most famous figures in philosophy. He was born in Athens and spent most of his time talking to people in the city. He never taught people, he just drew out ideas and arguments from people by feigning ignorance and asking questions. He very often revealed a person's ignorance in this manner by identifying the weaknesses in their thinking. Often this was done in public places and so he tended to make people look quite foolish in front of their peers. Sadly this may have led to his downfall as in 399 BC he was sentenced to death for"introducing new gods and corrupting the youth". He died after being forced to drink poison.
Much of his thinking and many of his ideas were captured by Plato (who was one of his students) because he never wrote anything down. Socrates said, "One thing only I know and that is that I know nothing." It was his desire to establish a strong foundation of knowledge that led him to seek answers to his many questions and become a philosopher.
