>have you ever heard of Plato? And like, his idea of the forms
Now I've read a bit about Plato's theory of forms, but I know very little about philosophy in general. I've always wanted to ask, did no one ask for proof when philosophers came up with this shit? How did it gain acceptance to the point where it was taught in university for centuries?

>>11128258
From what I understand about the time period essentially all the "fathers of philosophy" Plato, Aristotle, pythagoras, to a lesser extent Homer, would have today been dismissed as self absorbed autists but given the culture of the time they were allowed to just stand in the courtyards and market places telling everyone else they were retarded because they weren't autistic enough to invent a new way to use numbers to calculate how far a cows knee can rotate
Eventually some richer people were convinced that these guys might actually be worth something and funded them
