 Anaxagoras (c. 500-428 BCE) [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Anaxagoras was born in Ionia in the town of Clazomenae, a lively port city on the coast of present-day Turkey.
A key advantage of Anaxagoras’ belief that the heavenly bodies were simply stone masses was that it enabled him to provide an account of meteorites as bodies that occasionally become dislodged from the cosmic vortex and plummet to earth.
Plutarch attests that Anaxagoras was credited with predicting the fall of a meteorite in 467 BCE, but it is unclear from the historical attestations whether Anaxagoras’ theory predated or was prompted by the event.

It might appear strange that, while acknowledging the political ineptness of one "returning from divine contemplations," Plato has all the while been describing the ideal state, ruled by philosopher-kings, a qualification of which is that they are in regular intercourse with the Form of the Good.

MGT 428 focuses on management control, which may be defined as the set of policies, tools and procedures that an organization employs to help ensure that the organization achieves its preset goals and objectives.
Since “an organization” does not in and of itself accomplish things, management control under this definition involves the motivation, evaluation and rewarding of individuals constituting the organization so that they behave in ways consistent with organizational goals.
So, MGT 428 is a highly integrative course, drawing upon a wide range of management and allied disciplines.

 Plato's Apology
As the seventy-year-old Socrates presents his defense, he brings to our attention a wealth of philosophic concerns: what the good life is--and whether "the unexamined life is not worth living"--the nature of political power, the basis of religious conviction, questions about death and dying, whether truth exists, and a method of philosophic argument and dialogue.
The body of work Plato left includes the early dialogues in which Socrates is portrayed using a question-and-answer method in his attempt to arrive at true understanding, not just opinion, of virtue or elements of virtue, such as piety in Euthyphro, temperance in Charmides, courage in Laches, and virtue in Meno.
