I have always attributed our (or at least my) modern ideas of abstraction itself to Plato.

Being the middle child, so to speak, Plato may never really get the credit he deserves. It is unclear how much he took from Socrates or how much Aristotle took from him. I do agree, he was the modeler of the trio. Platonic solids still fascinate me. I’ll have more to say about Plato in the future. Thanks for sharing!
