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.

    Socrates begins his reply to the brothers of Plato by attempting to elucidate the argument, and he again employs an analogy. Thus far in the argument, he explains, we seem to have been rather philosophically nearsighted, attempting to find justice in the individual man, . Plato, Republic ("Agamemnon", "Hom. Od.

About Plato's Republic. Overview. The Republic is arguably the most popular and most widely taught of Plato's writings. Although it contains its dramatic moments and it employs certain literary devices, it is not a play, a novel, a story; it is not, in a strict sense, an essay.

Thrasymachus' definition is the central challenge of the rest of the Republic, as Socrates tries to prove him wrong. Plato means for Thrasymachus to seem foolish and unpleasant, and his demand for pay, customary for Sophists, is a deliberate blot on his character.

The philosopher as a lover of learning and truth is disinclined to attend to physical pleasures. Adeimantus interrupts to point out that most people think philosophers are vicious cranks, and the few good ones are useless to society.

Socrates replies that this view is the result of faults in society, not in philosophers. Socrates says a philosopher loves truth, not just the appearance of truth, or the appearance of beauty. The concept of the philosopher-king dominates the remainder of the Republic.
