Plato, a Greek philosopher who lived from 427BC to 347BC, famously wrote that, "Necessity is the mother of inventions." Do you agree with this statement? Why or why not?
My response was, " I agree with this statement because most of the inventions from the 1800s and in todays generation was/are an necessity.
However, my question is, "Which of the inventions we covered today supports your response to whether, "Necessity is the mother of invention." Explain your response and in doing so.
Note: The inventions I learned today were: Light bulb
Assembly line
Vacuum cleaner
Transatlantic cable
Chain stores
