The Republic of Plato


the Republic of Plato

the end of this allegory, Plato asserts that it is the philosopher's burden to reenter the cave. Glaucon says that if people had the power to do injustice without fear of punishment, they would not enter into such an agreement. 21 For Hegel, Plato's Republic is not an abstract theory or ideal which is or too good for the real nature of man, but rather is not ideal enough, not good enough for the ideals already inherent or nascent in the reality of his time;.

Some have argued that the Republic is neither a precursor of these political positions nor does it fit any of them. . The other significant event was the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta, in which Plato served for a brief time between 409 and 404.C.E. Some indicate that Socrates discussion of political matters is meant, in part, to provide us with Platos critique of Greek political life. .
