Reading Plato’s Republic

Posted: April 3, 2011 in About Me, Books

From http://hypernews.ngdc.noaa.govImage via WikipediaOne of the most interesting books in the world, in my opinion.
About the nature of Justice and injustice “Nothing less than the rule of human life is at stake”
The question is “is there more benefit from being just than unjust?”
Thrasymachus starts off by saying the unjust man gains more than the just, by stealing of course.
Socrates job is to prove that the just man is generally happier as a person.

The book makes me rather cheerful 🙂 And probably smarter and more philosophical.
My method of thinking is changing already.
