This article examines George Gemistos-Plethon's personality and thought, a Greek neo-platonic philosopher of the late Byzantine Period. The problems of Byzantium were his main motive for the presentation of a theory dealing with the revival of the state. His analysis of the errors that the emperors and the authorities had made till then and the manner in which the situation could ameliorate constitute the main themes of and reasons for Plethon's theory about society, army, politics, law and economy, which were, however, not endorsed by the Orthodox Church. He constructed a theory about society, policy, and economy that is relevant even nowadays.
