Socrates
(470-399 BC)
   An eminent Greek philosopher who may have experienced * verbal auditory hallucinations. Socrates did not leave any writings known to us today, but as recounted by Plato (c. 428-347BC) in the Theages, he heard a voice which he attributed to his daimonion, a benign spirit which purportedly accompanied him from an early age, and told him what not to do in important situations.
