The earliest records of critical thinking are the teachings of Socrates recorded by Plato. These included a part in Plato’s early dialogues, where Socrates engages with one or more interlocutors on the issue of ethics such as the question of whether it was right for Socrates to escape from prison. The philosopher considered and reflected on this question and came to the conclusion that escape violates all the things that he holds higher than himself: the laws of Athens and the guiding voice that Socrates claims to hear.
