The Megarian school of philosophy, which flourished in the 4th century BC, was founded by Euclid of Megara, one of the pupils of Socrates. Its ethical teachings were derived from Socrates, recognizing a single good, which was apparently combined with the Eleatic doctrine of Unity. Some of Euclid's successors developed logic to such an extent that they became a separate school, known as the Dialectical school. Their work on modal logic, Logical conditionals, and propositional logic played an important role in the development of logic in antiquity.
