Ancient Greek philosophy is considered to be the start of Western philosophy. The main similarity between Socrates, Plato and Aristotle was their dissatisfaction with society. Socrates sought to fix the world through the Socratic method, Plato had his theory of Forms and Ideas and Aristotle used logic and science. Their work profoundly influenced later Christian and Islamic thinking.
