Plato Contribution to Geography
Plato: (428-347 BC):
Plato is regarded as the master of deductive reasoning – from the general to the particular.
He is considered to be the first scholar who adopted the idea of round earth located in the center of the universe with the other celestial bodies revolving around it in a circular motion.
Plato’s opinion about barren land was that it is “like skeleton of a sick man,” where only the bare framework of the land left after all the fat and soft earth have been wasted away. Plato considered man as an active agent who has the ability to change the face of the earth.
