Plato was a 4th century Greek philosopher. His teachings and writings, especially The Republic (expounding on justice and forms of government) have been influential on Western Philosophy, although he also was an important figure in science and mathematics. His most famous student was Aristotle.
In the 1996 Creature Shop TV movie Gulliver's Travels, Plato is among the historical figures conjured in the home of The Sorceror, along with Cleopatra, Archimedes, Alexander the Great, Hannibal, and Mark Antony, among others. He argues briefly about when the existence of the soul begins.
