The Academy (akademeia), originally the name of a district of Athens, came to refer to the school of Plato and his successors, who taught there. The history of the Academy is customarily divided into the Old and New Academies, the New Academy (beginning with Carneades) being a largely Skeptical school. Although the Academy ceased to be influential after the 2nd century BC, it did not cease operations until 529 AD.
