Nationality: Greek

Occupation: Philosopher

Bio: Xenocrates of Chalcedon was a Greek philosopher, mathematician, and leader of the Platonic Academy from 3393 BC. His teachings followed those of Plato, which he attempted to define more closely, often with mathematical elements. He distinguished three forms of being, the sensible, the intelligible, and a third compounded of the two, to which correspond respectively, sense, intellect and opinion.
