Socrates ' Greatest Failing Is The Same As His Greatest Achievement?

- Socrates’ greatest failing is the same as his greatest achievement; the great Republic he builds is not intended to last—nor can it. Socrates and Polemarchus agree that it is impossible to change the nature of the unjust man with the misapplication of justice. Harm, they agree, will simply drive the unjust man to more injustice (335d). The next three books then proceed to deal with this thorny problem—how to transform the unjust man into a just one, for the benefit of society. Adeimantus’ creation of the vegetarian polis with little or no personal property seems to lack injustice (371d)....   [tags: Ethics, Plato]
