Plato's philosopher and Nietzsche's Overman
Two important similarities and two important differences
between Plato's Philosopher and Nietzsche's Overman.
For Plato, the Philosopher is 1. A man of wisdom, pursues
knowledge with an insatiable curiosity and distinguishes between knowledge and
belief. 2. He is a ruler, different from the ruled or the masses, that is, he
is a different breed of man.
