Discussion384 Words / ~ pages Thomas Merton Oakville LVV4U January 12th, 2014 Critical Reflection on Athenian Democracy When the concept of Athenian democracy was developed and enriched by the noblemen Cleisthenes, Solon, and Ephialtes during the Archaic Period it had a significant impact not only on Greece but on future nations to come. Often harshly criticized by major thinkers and philosophers such as Socrates and Plato, the system of democracy asserted itself successfully. It crossed the Athenian borders and by the 4th century BCE, the time of Aristotle, there were hundreds of democracies in Greece among several cities that were still ruled in an oligarchic or autocratic way.
