How did Plato and Aristotle continue to spread their beliefs?

Plato expressed his ideas in numerous 'dialogues'. In his earliest dialogues Plato develops the ideas of Socrates through portrayals of Socrates' discussions with his contemporaries that proceed by questions and answers. Socrates is represented as asking a question and then analyzing the respondent's answer to generate more and better answers. Over time Plato gradually introduced his own, more developed, ideas in place of those of Socrates, though he still used Socrates as the speaker of these ideas.

History of Greece

The history of Greece encompasses the history of the territory of the modern state of Greece, as well as that of the Greek people and the areas they ruled historically. The scope of Greek habitation and rule has varied much through the ages, and, as a result, the history of Greece is similarly elastic in what it includes. Each era has its own related sphere of interest.
