3 PLATO (428–427 BC c. 348–347 BC Athens)
Plato was a Classical Greek philosopher mathematician, student of Socrates, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

4 PLATO’S PHILOSOPHY For Plato this type of love is something spontaneous that inspires the mind and soul. He considered love as something very positive that has the function of purifying the soul. In Sidney's sonnet Stella is something far and unattainable. Astrophel knows this aspect, but he cannot live without her and he is unable to give up his love. Stella is the most brilliant star and Astrophel cannot survive without her light. This type of love is also present in Romeo and Juliet. It is evident in the declaration of love done by Romeo who describes his beloved with positive images, like the light and the sun.
