      Tolkien's story of how a ring with magic power led to the corruption of those who owned it has obvious connections to Plato's story. The Ring of Gyges, from the Republic, Book II "They say that to do injustice is, by nature, good; to suffer injustice, evil; but that the evil is greater than the good.   The Allegory of the Cave is a story from Book VII in the Greek philosopher Plato's masterpiece "The Republic," written in B.C.E. It is probably Plato's best-known story, and its placement in "The Republic" is significant.

      Believe it or not, the English title The Republic may not actually be the most accurate translation of this dialogue's Greek title Politeia. "Politeia" means something much closer to our word "regime," which actually makes a bit more sense. Considering that Plato's city is an aristocracy in which the state controls practically every part of life, calling it a "republic," with the democratic. According to the story, Gyges, a young shepherd in the service of the King of Lydia was out with his flock one day when a great storm occurred. Near to where he was tending sheep, there was an earthquake, opening a crevice into the ground. Gyges descended into the crevice where he found, among other things, a bronze horse, with doors. Opening.

      Now that we’ve done the groundwork, The Creation of the American Republic tells the birth story of the Constitution. Please give us a précis. I remind my graduate students that Gordon Wood prepared The Creation of the American Republic as his doctoral dissertation, just to scare or, hopefully, inspire them. The fact that so much research and intellectual sophistication went into a PhD.

The argument of the Republic is the search after Justice, the nature of which is first hinted at by Cephalus, the just and blameless old man—then discussed on the basis of proverbial morality by Socrates and Polemarchus—then caricatured by Thrasymachus and partially explained by Socrates—reduced to an abstraction by Glaucon and.

The Republic Summary Our story begins as Socrates and his friend Glaucon head home from a festival. Ready to call it a night, they're intercepted by a whole gang of their acquaintances, who eventually convince them to come hang out at Polemarchus's house and have a nice, long chat.

In Book VII, Socrates presents the most beautiful and famous metaphor in Western philosophy: the allegory of the cave. This metaphor is meant to illustrate the effects of education on the human soul. Education moves the philosopher through the stages on the divided line, and ultimately brings him to the Form of the Good.

Summary: Book II, a–c. Socrates believes he has adequately responded to Thrasymachus and is through with the discussion of justice, but the others are not satisfied with the conclusion they have reached. Glaucon, one of Socrates’s young companions, explains what they would like him to do.

And our answer will be that, even as they are, our guardians may very likely be the happiest of men; but that our aim in founding the State was not the disproportionate happiness of any one class, but the greatest happiness of the whole; we thought that in a State which is ordered with a view to the good of the whole we should be most likely to find Justice, and in the ill-ordered State injustice: and, having.
