The philosophies of modern psychologists mirror closely the philosophy of Socrates and Plato

Maslow's hierarchy of needs is very similar to Socrates's parable of the divided line.

Freud's theory of the ego is very similar to Socrates's idea of prudence as the auriga virtutum, the charioteer of the virtues.

B.F. Skinner's Beyond Freedom and Dignity mirrors closely Republic. The idea being, that if one knows truly what justice is, totalitarianism is justifiable.
