Good searchers triangulate output from several engines to acheive relevent results.

Nevertheless, it is generally accepted that it is rooted in the reality of the discriminatory social system in America with its historic origins in the institution of slavery.

Plato's Republic, the Search for Justice and Goodness

- Plato's Republic – The Search for Justice and Goodness Plato's Republic is often read as a political work, as a statement of some sort on government, society, and law. This is certainly not a rash reading of the dialogue; it is called the Republic, and over half of it is devoted to the construction of a city through speech, a city complete with a government structure, a military, an economic system, and laws. However, I believe that to read the Republic as a political statement is inaccurate. Although Socrates and his companions construct a city out of speech as they attempt to define justice, the dialogue repeatedly frames justice as something that cannot be established through a fixed sy...   [tags: Philosophy Religion Essays]

The other is societal, achieved through allegory and symbolism, and aimed at the reader.
