Why Plato Still Matters

Yes, the Greek philosopher and thinker, Plato still matters.
Why?
Because we, the people want to achieve fulfillment through our life. And Plato helps us to achieve that goal. How our lives become more fulfilled? How we could achieve peace and happiness?
Plato thought about it much earlier, more than two thousand years ago.
He told us to “Think more.”
When we ‘think more’, we can find the more logical path to attain fulfillment.
Only thinking more helps us to find out that the person we love, is actually admirable; because of this admiration, we fall in love.
So, Plato told us ‘let your lover change you’.
Yes, the person we admire most, love madly, must have something that we can learn and take into our heart to become more wise about life. May be he or she is more honest than you, maybe he or she has more guts than you, more courageous than you.
You need to learn many things from your lover.
So, let your lover change you.
Plato thought about beauty not as an object of lust, but he said, any beautiful thing is actually has many qualities in it that we don’t have. So, try to read that secret message that a beautiful thing is whispering.
Plato also felt the urge to educate people first and then only let them allow to vote.
We know how relevant is that now!

The philosophy of object oriented programming

Standard

Programmatically today is good. I added user and membership tables using aspnet_regsql.exe in a database. After creating it I connected it through Provider class in web.config.
Next, I created roles programmatically and assign roles to users.
This is great. I wanted to do it for last two three days and failed. But the method is not very difficult at all.
You use a command line code like this:
aspnet_regsql.exe -d -E -A all
pressing enter the required classes(tables) will have added to the database. Now using the proper connection string you can get connected to the database.
The next steps are pieces of cakes as you drag web controls from Login toolbox. The default classes automatically attached and next thing you write down a class which inheriting from SqlProvider overrides the methods to create Roles and assign users to that roles.
Asp.Net ships with plenty of classes that you can use with your classes and create objects accordingly.
This is the greatness of Object Oriented Programming.
I find it Philosophical getting reflections of the real world. Don’t you?
